We finished school in mid-May, and I had great expectations of getting lots of organizing done and spending lots of time with my sweet kids in the pool.
Not to mention, I was going to blog every day - bahahahaha!!
Instead, we had lots of running, unforeseen obligations, washing machine trouble, van trouble, and LOTS and LOTS of baseball practices/games.
In addition, first trimester pregnancy nausea and fatigue seemed to wipe me out!! (I'm still waiting on that 2nd trimester "energy surge"...I NEED it badly!!)
So, May and June whirred by in a blur...and, then, FINALLY July brought with it a little more calm and some much-needed down time.
A couple of weeks ago, Gregg and I went outside to sit on the deck and watch the kids play in the pool...
And this is what we saw:
Somehow, this marked the true beginning of summer vacation for me. :)
So...I did what any good mother - and budding photographer - would do...I grabbed my camera!
I won't say how many of my kids were found swimming in the buff, but I will say our daughter was NOT one of them. At least she understands the importance of modesty! :)
Here's to what's left of summer fun!!
Welcome, Summer!! It's SO good to finally see you!!
