Outside my window:
Feeling like summer!
Around the house:
Today was laundry day. I do our laundry and most of my household chores on Monday so that I can focus on other funner things the rest of the week. I still have a few organization projects that I am working on but it has improved a lot the past two weeks.
They are enjoying summer break. The older two start swim lessons tomorrow for the next two weeks. I took them to the waterpark at the YMCA last week and that was lots of fun.
I took Annika to get her ears pierced over the weekend and enjoyed some mommy daughter time with her. It is hard to believe she is growing up so much.
Our summer schedule seems to be going well.
In the kitchen:
On the Menu: Turkey and Rice Casserole, Tacos, Garlic Chicken, Opee Sea Crunch, Pizza, and Breakfast for dinner. Made Roasted Garlic Cauliflower for the first time a few weeks ago and oh my this is seriously yummy stuff. This is now in our regular veggie side dish rotation.
I went through my yarn stash last weekend and Annika enjoyed picking out some yarns. Now that I have everything organized hopefully I can start a few projects.
We have been on a two week break after finishing school and are just starting our summer lessons today. Working on spelling and math over the summer. With some fun science and Spanish added in. Zane is going to keep on with Reading Eggs. All the kids are signed up at the library for their summer reading program.
Bringing me joy:
Sunshine. Swimming with kids. Growing my own veggies. Taking walks with the kids. Spending “date nights” at home with the hubby after the kids are in bed.
How much the kids are growing. Would like to put the breaks on it sometimes.
