First Day of Summer

Today was the first day of summer "break" and ...

  • I dragged the kids out of bed an hour earlier than a school day.
  • I entertained a tired six-year-old at the closed-to-non-swim-team-members pool for two hours while Emma and Adam were at swim practice.  
  • the kids played wii and ate popsicles while I made a gazillion phone calls and answered emails about the youth conference activities we're in charge of. 
  • I brought my brother Tim to the airport. 
  • we met a new friend at the pool.
  • we only stayed for an hour, so we could rush Spencer off to lacrosse practice 12 miles away in rush hour traffic.
  • I entertained two exhausted children at lacrosse practice for two hours. 
  • we ate dinner at 9:15pm. 
  • Glen got home from work at 9:30pm. 
  • I put the younger kids to bed at 10:00pm. 
  • Cami returned from her babysitting job at 11:10pm and Spencer's friend is just leaving and I am going to bed ASAP. 


 

It's exactly one day into summer break and I am questioning my sanity at signing the kids up for swim team and thinking that I'm already about ready for a summer break break.

Hoping that your summer break "break" includes Island Park and a certain cabin at Henry's Lake. If so, we will ban all phones and leave our computers home for a real break!

You are one busy woman! What a crazy day yesterday. I hope today wasn't quite as stressful. You rock!

I am right there with you! It's funny. We sign our kids up for stuff for summer to keep them busy but truly, we are the only busy ones driving everyone where they need to go. Craziness!
