So why am I feeling thrown off balance? The sun came out today...it was warm on my face ..we grilled hamburgers for the crew..it is good. But...as the bubbles float around the yard..I love bubbles..and we start our summer piano lessons..I am feeling not on top of it all.
We have done some butterfly viewing..do you see them in the hearts..the kids loved that! Pretty little purple ones!
We went hiking in the woods...I loved that..so good for the soul..mmmmmmm...or maybe a bit more like ommmmmm. I even sat down and put my feet up and the kids hiked up a hill with Jim.
I lost myself in a little corner of woods and found this stump and couldn't help but think..there must have been fairies there before I came tromping along with those big ol' boots. Think I may have to draw this one...can't you just see them peaking out around it...well I can in my minds eye...can you??
So why am I feeling so unbalanced? Well...as much as I love the summer...everything changes in dramatic fashion for me. I go from kiddos here half days to allllll day long. There is so much more to do with them and my own kiddos...fun delightful things..like blowing bubbles and looking for fairy homes. I am distracted and well...I wanna play. So... I have to sit down and rework my schedule a bit..so I can fit in a bit of joyful silliness and fanciful fun into my days. So this evening when things are quiet and children are tucked into their beds..and the crickets are singing their evening song for me ...I will pull out my notebook and rework my days...at least for the summer.
Does you life change in the summer...would you like to share with me what you enjoy most about it? I would love to hear!!!
