Summer Lovin'

Summer is

a good excuse to relax,

a cool blue hat to keep the sun off your face,

wearing flip-flops everyday,

countless trips to the pool,

sticky Popsicle hands,

swimsuits drying on the patio,

fresh fruit served with every meal,

grocery shopping with 3 kids in tow,

no homework,

no lunchboxes to pack,

afternoons spent reading chapter books aloud,

making pasta salad and yogurt smoothies,

pushing bedtime a little later to allow for family game nights,

enjoying uninterrupted time together,

wishing any of my babies were still small enough to fit in that baby float!

  1. I love summer! I really loved the summers we had when the kids were younger. A later bedtime, bbq's, no homework, etc. Now they're older and busier (they both have jobs). I still love summer though!

    I think I told you before but for some strange reason I can see your pictures but not your words in Firefox. So I always have to use Internet Explorer browser when I view your blog or I can't read your posts. Isn't that odd?

    Anyway, thank you for linking up today!

  2. Aw... how sweet is that? Unlike you, however, I do not want to go through the "diaper stage." Happy Blue Monday.

  3. Loving the summer days! :D This week I'm spending it with my son as dd is off to church camp. :D Then in a few weeks it will be just her and I.

    Have a great Monday!

  4. That picture is so precious!!
    Summer for me? Getting de-cluttered, packed, and *insert ominous music here* POTTY TRAINING

  5. I hope this summer with your kids is truly blessed!

    Have a happy Blue Monday!

  8. Too cute!! I am SO ready for summer! This post really sums it up.

  9. What a sweet photo. Happy Blue Monday, and I hope your summer is great... filled with all the things you like to do and people you love.

  10. Sweet baby.Thanks for sharing and would love for you to come by for a visit. Debbie

  11. Thanks for the great reminder about the important things in life. Your blog always reminds me to enjoy these moments- these times with small children. Even though some days can be tedious, there is much simplicity and beauty in these days and I know I will miss them someday.

  12. That is one of the cutest pictures I have seen in a while. (not counting my child's pictures of course:)

  13. I am too blue to do Blue Monday but am taking time to jump to some of the blogs. This one reminds me of good times when I was raising the kids and enjoying summer to the fullest. Times that will resonate in my mind while I plod through the daily stuff at present. It will change, everything changes and God is good!


I'd love to hear what you think!
