Last week marked the last days of school.
Today summer break officially kicks off. And it is raining. Again.
I will celebrate by giving you my top ten reasons why I love this time:
I am assuming our summer days will be easy going and free since I will not be driving three children to three different schools. But I think I am wrong. I have scheduled an activity once a day, as usual, so I will still be watching the clock.
With all three children home I find our mornings go by very quickly. They play and bicker. Eat and then eat some more. Sometimes they play so well together and I really enjoy watching them share happily. In the midst of all of this I am trying to be diligent with my workout routine (I must lose 10 pounds before the Blogher Conference), but most days I would really like to skip it. and usually do. My morning routine is interrupted with lots of, "Momma he's/she's touching me / pushing me / hitting me / sitting in my chair / not sharing the computer /it's my turn...." Need I go on?
By the time I shower, which is a must since we are going out every day and I prefer not to look my age, it's lunchtime and then we are out the door. We come home and baby girl goes down for a nap, and I do the zip and dash around the house trying to get things in order and clean and then it is dinnertime.
I don't think I am heading to a blogging funk, but perhaps. I just need to focus on my children this summer. Plain and simple. And because our family is going to enjoy every minute of our summer's free time. If I don't get around to your blog it's because I just have things preoccupying my mind. Nothing major or urgent, but just, well, things. Life.
