Where has Summer gone?

On the last day of school, I had so many intentions of doing it ALL with my kids. I wanted to teach them, read, go on okay dates, swim and live to the fullest during our first summer break together. 

The next day I headed to the parent teacher store and purchased some amazing Pinterest worthy projects, to help Bryar learn more effectively.

Then the summer bug hit. 

so worked {only a little} 

 Played a lot 

Charli attended Music discovery week and learned the beginnings of Violin. Which she absolutely loved. 

We are our weight in watermon and peaches 

And had to wash our hands 50,000 times because even though he is ALL boy, he doesn't like to be sticky. 

We hosted a yard sale and Charli Beth sold lemonade to raise money for the humane society.

We volunteered at the humane society on Mondays. 

The kids and I tried our hand at golf. Charli says, she recieve a scholarship for it one day. 

Charli had to get a new pair of glasses. Which sadly aged her by five years. 

We gave our chickens cool baths to try to cook them down on blistering hot days. Although, only one enjoyed this idea.

I taught Vacation Bible School while the children learned in their own classes. It was a huge blessing spending the week with sweet five year old girls.

Swipped candy from Daddy and sent him photos of it while he was working. In reflecting on this I now noticed that I failed in parenting and took a selfie of us sticking out tounges out...which is a no in our house. Ha! Whoops.. 

We played and took naps. But we didn't go "over the top" like I had invisioned. Bryar still cannot count to 20, and doesn't know every letter of the alphabet. Charli's reading has improved but not an entire grade level. Although, now looking back, it is the best possible thing for us. We needed this slow down, and break from the ordinary busy life that had become our normal. We have a surprise for the kids at the end of the Summer break, and I think it will be the most fabulous ending to a perfect low key summer.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
