Summer Time and the Livin is Crazy Easy

So, the day Carleigh's school lets out early for the last day of school, she's telling me that very afternoon she is bored! Oh. My. Gosh! The child better figure out how to entertain herself, or she's going to have a frightful summer! I do not want to hear the word BORED ever again!! (SCREAM)The older two are already at each other's throats. One minute they are best friends, and the next minute they are bitter enemies. Calgon, take me away! I'm so glad we have many fun activites planned to occupy their time this summer.

They are taking swimming lessons this week and next. Carleigh is learning how to do the freestyle and doing quite well with it too. Luke is learning how to kick like a motor boat. I'm so proud of them! My next door neighbor told Carleigh a few weeks back as he was cleaning his built in pool and talking to Carleigh over the fence that she could have the pool. I know it's impossible to transfer the pool to our yard, which would be totally awesome, but I think I might ask him is it would be okay if we came over like every single day to swim! It really wears out the kids and makes them ready for bed without much complaint. It's already a million degrees outside in our neck of the woods, and just plain miserable if you're not in the water or the shade with a very strong breeze blowing.

Emma finally found relief last night from her stopped up tummy. Funny how our conversation changes after we have kids, isn't it? I'm getting totally amused as I type about my daughter's dirty diaper for the whole world to read. I'm just thankful she's feeling better.

Cora is growing so fast. She was adorable this afternoon lying on one of those playmats with the toys hanging down in her face hitting them and smiling one of those big, wide toothless grins. I wish I could've caught it on camera, but I got caught up in the moment and was moving way too slowly to make that happen before she decided it wasn't fun anymore.

Well, tomorrow is FRIDAY! Hope you get a great start to your weekend.

  1. I thought about you last night as I was going to sleep. Your last post made me really think and I prayed for you and your family. Isn't it amazing how fast children grow and change and then get bored! Swimming is my favorite thing to do, too and it does wear you out. Get those kiddos in the pool! Thanks for sharing your stories - poop and all.
