Well it is officially summer around here. The kids were in the pool before 9 and they are eating breakfast in their swimsuits. In the pool.
Here's something else that's official- I'm shutting down school for the summer. I had considered doing some form of modified school, but you know what? We need this! When the kids were stripping down in the backyard at 8:45 am my first instinct was to say "no- we have chores... and math!", but then I thought, no way man, let the kids do whatever they want, it's summer dangit! So it is now officially official. And all that homeschool mama worry about "am I doing enough?" is now out the window. Swimming and freezer pops and chasing chickens and killing stink bugs...this is enough.
|we were so mature when we got married- here we were giggling |
because we had to kiss in front of everyone!
And finally, it is officially 13 years today that I married my best friend. And since we have been together for most of our lives, it is 20 years in total that we have been together. Am I a lucky girl, or what? I mean, what a gift this life is that I get to spend with John. He is my favorite, and getting to wake up most every day with your favorite is a treasure. It's birthday morning every morning. So happy birthday to this life that we have built. Together.
