lazy summer

These lazy summer days.  Yesterday I had some things to do and I totally blew them off in exchange for staying close to home.  We did a little laundry, a trip to the farmer's market and a stop by the post office to send Amelia a care package (a duffel bag, gluten free lemon bars, toothpaste and a card).  But mainly, we did much of nothing. I'm not much for packing my schedule full of activities because we do enough of that during the school year.

Summer = LAZY

Not that my summer has been uneventful.  Amelia has been away at summer school for 5 excruciating weeks.  The boys and I have been sprinkling our days with fun activities while she's been gone.

Months ago when summer was just a page on my calender, we applied for a two night summer camp for Solomon.  That happened last weekend and I envisioned that page on my calender in my mind and checked it off of our summer plans. I'm now looking forward to Amelia coming home in 12 days.

We still have plenty of summer left and I'm happy about that.  I need that recharge time in the summer to think and plan for the school year coming up.

I hope you're summer has been fun!


  1. Thank you for sharing those pictures of home. Summer is amped up lazy, craziness. I'm glad you're enjoying yours and I'm happy Amelia will be home soon!

    1. Thanks Rachael! ♥ I cannot wait for her to be home. This is driving me crazy having her gone.

  2. the fact that some mothers homeschool still baffles me

    i cannot imagine it

    i really cannot

    oh well

    i admire it though, and love being baffled

    summer camp, that baffles me too actually

    when my kids start their own seasons of camp, i will just dive in and acclimate i guess

    it really makes sense though, what a sweet way to begin to prepare the fledglings

    summer and lazy go hand in hand for us too

    david has been staying home in the mornings till ten often


    love summer

    i would marry her if she'd take me

    1. My Heather! You're baffled? I can tell you that a lot of people are baffled at homeschooling. You're not alone. All I can say is that it's what my son needed from me at the time and we've grown into it. It was what was in my heart. I've become a lot more organized over the past few years also. That's good.

      I'd marry summer too, but then I'd have to divorce her for autumn...and so on. I like the change of seasons.


  3. Wow! That view and the wide open space! Amazing!
