I love summer time. There are so many fun things to do and it is so bright in the morning! I love that the sunset is so late in the evening too; it makes the day feel so long! I have been trying to give the kids plenty to do outside (in the shade)- to enjoy this beautiful weather. They mostly play in the water table. We got a baby pool for $3 last week, and will be using it lots too.
I am trying to make the most of each day of the summer. It never seems to last long enough. I know Fall is just around the corner. I am starting to prepare for Aimlee’s school lessons and planning to put her in an extra curricular activity for early Fall. I am so excited to have a new pair of (super cheap and cute) cowgirl boots- which may make the season changing a little more tolerable. But for now, I’m enjoying each, sunny, hot and long summer day!
I hope to get out to the pool a few more times, spend a few days with friends, and get a little more of a tan. I have been spending the past week or so, starting to plan the kid’s birthday party. Aimlee is so excited to help me make all the plans.
Evan has been learning new words each day. He recently has been showing how much he loves cows like his Gram! We even went to the Cow Appreciation Day at Chick Fil A. Last week we had our first bee sting when he stepped on a bee in the grass. How many times can Mommy say “ let’s put on our shoes before we go outside”. Nope, we are almost 2, and so independent… Until we get hurt and then we want Mommy! So silly.
The kids love playing and learning each day. It is so fun to see what they will want to do! I have also enjoyed getting to do some of the fun summer things that I like to do too. Right now, I am just wanting to enjoy each beautiful day that God has made- and I will rejoice in it!
