I am up to my eyeballs in laundry! This was yesterday before I finished the last three loads. It was the leaning tower of laundry and I made darn sure to let it all sit there leaning until every last person came home and saw what I’d done. Or maybe I should say, what they’d done.
We are down to the wire here. Two days of school left. I am processing a plan in my mind because reality is kicking me in the tushie right now.
My summer plan has to do with three words: WORK, LEARN, and PLAY. I think if we do a little bit of those three each day, we’ll be good.
I love my kids. I love when they are home. Sometimes it is really hard when they are all home together though because they are wacky and love/hate each other. I guess it’s a good thing that starting one week from tomorrow, at least one person will be gone for three weeks straight at a camp of some kind or another. Then June is over. Wow.
And July is already gone for our family. Totally and completely gone. More on that later.
So really, I just have to survive August and I’ll be okay. I can say this much: Summers a changin’ around here. It’s not laid back and casual anymore. It’s FULL UP IN MY BUSINESS.
While one kid is at camp, the others will be cleaning out closets and toy rooms with me, sorting Legos, exercising, reading and going to the pool a lot. We’re going to eat FroYo. We’re going to make a bird feeder and do Cub Scout belt loops. Hannie B.is going to continue honing her cooking skills. Ollie is going to do some letter and number work.Big C is going to run 500 miles. I’m going to get some projects done around here and read a stack of books that have been sitting by my bed for a while.
And most importantly, I’m going to insist that everyone wear only one outfit a week or go naked because I am not doing eleven loads of laundry again in one day.
Over and out.
