Easy Living


There’s 104 days of summer vacation….

Does anyone else love the Phineas and Ferb theme song? We do, but my kids were sorely disappointed to realize they did not actually have that many days off for summer! Bummer! School starts back in less than a month. Geez…that was fast.

Daycamp, a few movies, lots of late nights, and a week with the grandparents has been about the extent of this summer break.  Nothing too exciting. And they have loved it! We have learned along the way that busier does not always means better.  It’s nice to take a minute to breathe every now and then!  But, if you’re running into more “Mom, I’m booorrred” days than you like, maybe you could

go on a nature walk, or a bike ride, to the library, to an airshow (Blue Angels if you’re near Pensacola), to an art museum….a lot have kids’ programs during the summer, play under the water hose–remember that? make ice cream, camp out in the living room, eat a watermelon then see who can spit the seeds the farthest, make playdoh…

I am looking down my hall where there is now an obstacle course made out of string. Tomorrow, I think we will go to the park. But not too early…..I’m sleeping in!

Happy Summer, y’all!
