I realized today that I love summertime in theory, but that I long for the routine and excitement of the school year. Everything seems to shut down in the summer- just when I want it all to continue. The kids are out of school and we need stuff to do-or should I say, they need something to do! Growing up, I loved summer. I would stay at the pool from swim team practice at 8 am until my parents made me come home near dinner time. Friends were everywhere- at the pool all day and in the neighborhood all evening.
This season of life is totally different. Last week was a flurry of details and events with the wedding out of town and a newborn. I loved it! I loved seeing all the people and having things to do and the time flew by. The past couple of days have been slower, and I did need to rest after the weekend. But I am wondering how the rest of the summer will go with so little out there to do. I know there will be a day when lucy is 4, cord is 5, emma is 8 and livy is 10 and we are at the pool all day until they drop into their beds 🙂 Until then, I will have to be more creative- but honestly, right now I have 15 pictures drying from the paint session yesterday and it only took 30 mintues!
