Definitely one for the books. We are livin’ it up this summer in every possible way. Life is too short not too. I know it can be hard having the kids “home” but honestly, I have no desire to spend lots of money on camps, just to have them not want to be home with me. The time will come when they will want to hang more with friends and less with us. It’s around the corner and will be here before I know it. I’m sure I will blink and beg for these days to return. So I try to remember that when 4 kids gets the best of me and I want to do is wave the white flag for the day.
But for now, today, I’m basking in the sounds of little kids laughter… smiles for miles about frozen yogurt, pool dates, play dates and movie nights with popcorn.
Yes, it’s a challenge when one works, but for now, for this year, I’m going make like I won the lottery and keep livin’ the good life. After all, it’s called summer vacation for a reason.
