Lazy Days of Summer

Well, its HOT!!!! Need I say more??? The weatherman says it wont get any better...worse. What does this mean?? Like we may all melt? I love summer...not days like this..but summer in general. When I think of summer I think of Lemonade, lightning bugs, vacations, swimming pools, bike riding, homemade ice cream, crickets, camping, carnivals and cotton candy, fresh cut lawns...and so many other things. Summertime is what our kids live for. They cant wait until the last day of school.....summer break. They can sleep late, nap during the day, swim do what kids like to do. Madison has a tennis lesson today at 11am...(what was I thinking) it will be too hot. I'm sure she will take all the ice out of the freezor and put it in her mega big water bottle. The weatherman says it will be 101 today..that is just too hot...the kind of hot that you get when you have one child on your hip while the other child is holding your hand (with something melted on it) while walking inside a store from the car. Your face has sweat dribbling down and you are starting to have that sweat smell. (you know what I mean) its gross. Anyway, its too hot to even concentrate. I walked outside to work on my flowers and had no bra on and well you know you start sweating imediantly...everywhere.
I had to come inside. But bottom line..summertime is what we live for too.....our kids having fun, family vacations, memories, and before we know it it will be January with a temp of 4 below 0 and we will be saying..where did summer go??????? So lets enjoy it while we have it and make the best of it...wether it be grabbing a water hose and spraying the kids..or getting the ice cream maker out and letting the kids make it this time...or just going for a swim in a local pool make those memories because one day you will look back and smile.
Enjoy this Hot summer day......they will soon be gone.

I agree with you! I always complain when it's too hot outside, but then when summer is gone I wish it were here again!

Nice family photo. Is this your pool? I would love to get a pool, but for now we are in military housing. We want to buy when we go to our next duty station. By the way what's up with the heat? We are pretty lucky here it never really goes above the 80's and this summer has been mostly 70's. I hope the heat breaks for you all soon!!! By the way great blog.

Wow, thank you for commenting on "My Prayer for Today". Thank you for praying with me. It is truly my hearts desire. We are going through so much right now and it is hard to just sit and take it one day at a time. But the bible say each day holds it's own worries so I should only take each day at a time.

It's 115 degrees here but it's probably not as humid as it is there. The yard looks beautiful! You never seen that much greenery in Arizona. Unless you want a HUGE water bill. :P

Thanks for visiting me! Looking forward to reading your posts!

Jenny's so right about the water bill - here in western Colorado it takes a lot of water to keep things green. Thanks for reminding us to enjoy the last days of our summers.
