And the Livin' is Easy?

Summer begins today at 12:45. We are all a little apprehensive about being done with school. The kids will miss their friends. I will miss the quiet. I won't miss trying to rouse them out of bed in the morning and get them out the door before 8. We have our summer routine all planned, so hopefully we won't get too out of whack. Summer at our house is not lazy, because lazy = bored. I have to keep these kids occupied, or we will have whiners. Whiners get sold to the gypsies, and thanks to TLC, I now know where the gypsies live.

First item on the agenda is to pick fabrics for their reading journals. We love doing the summer reading program at the library, and each kid needs a place to keep all the papers organized. I still need to come up with math activities for the summer. Maybe I'll have them count the socks in the laundry. 

One thing is for sure, I am determined to have sewing time when my kids are home. Also I am determined to be tan. You can hide 10 pounds with a good tan, you know.

Love it! Um, were you going to allow your children any fun, or just reading and math? Kidding=)))

Haha! I love everything about this post. You're more organized than I am about summer break! ;-) Elsa's started today, too.

I see sewing outside in your future!!! I've seen lots of math ideas on pinterest, but then, if you go there you won't have any time to sew. ;-D

Revel in the good and the bad of it all. Someday you will be 54 and they'll all be grown and gone. Mind you, it's glorious, but I do miss it just a teeny bit. I just wish I'd had TLC and the gypsy threat back in those days. You are too funny! :)
