Summer overall


Some things I have loved about Summer

1. Sleeping in past 7! It has been so nice to stay up till 11 and sleep past 7.

2. On really hot days..just watching movies from Redbox....$1movies rock! Saved us from really expensive outings this summer.

3. The sound of summer...crickets, kids playing in the pool, laughter.

4. Watermelon, ice cream from the ice cream man, grilled hot dogs....

5. Fireworks, riding bikes, bad mitten in the back yard.

6. Family outings, cook outs, dinners out with friends sitting outside.

7. Sitting on the porch with Scott drinking coffee in the mornings.

8. Lemonade, lemon bars, sun tea.

9. Field Trips...to a different park to play and have picnics.

10. Vacations to the beach!

11. Our garden and its bounty!

We have had a great summer. And its still going on somewhat. Madison started school and Miller starts back Monday. So....we still have weekends to enjoy our favorite things about summer.
What are your favorite things about summer?

Tuesday day book instead!

FOR TODAY...Tuesday.August 11th

Outside my window...its humid....very humid. You can see the humidity in the air.

I am thinking...of the errands to run today. Not many.

I am thankful for....slow days.

I'am wearing..striped pajamas

I am remembering...football season and how much fun it is!

I am going....to run errands today...picking up some stationary I ordered and running to CVS.

I am reading...nothing...trying to enjoy the summer.

I am hoping...that we have a peaceful school year.

On my mind...wine trip.

From the learning rooms...writing Miller with a pencil. Still!

Noticing that....no matter how hard it is to let your children go...you have to.

Pondering these words...Heat Warning! Yes we are under one!

From the kitchen...Chicken Tacos with Mexi Rice...watermelon...leftover cheesecake in the fridge!

What are we doing this week.....Gymnastics, church, lunch with an old friend, 1 playdate for Miller, a dr app for Miller (ENT), cheer practice and a game, helping with a fundraiser in our town on Saturday. Kids in and out of the house too!

Around the house..Just straightening up, stripping sheets, need to mop the kitchen floor...keep up with laundry! Stay cool!

One of my favorite things...loving on Miller in the morning!

Last days of summer

Today is gonna be so hot around here. My husband works outside and I worry about him alot when it gets this hot.

This week Madison goes back to school. Seems like I just said we are out of school. Makes me sad. But the school supply's are bought the new outfits are bought...so I guess we are ready.
She has cheer practice the first day! So she will be worn out once its over.

Today she is getting her hair highlighted and I have some errands to run. In between running her everywhere I need to make a list of cleaning some of the house. My hard wood floors need attention!

Tomorrow will be laying in the pool and enjoying each other. Once school starts those days are done. She is happy with her teachers and team she is on. I pray this will be a better school year for her. Last year was tough. A learning exp. This year I hope and pray she finds who she is...who her friends really are and not worry about the small stuff...that is my prayer for her.

I'm still doing my Jillian Michaels Making the cut work out...today is day 9. I've lost 3 1/2 pounds...working my butt off. It's not easy!

Have a great day!
