Yikes! Half the year has flown by.
I could easily blame life or the fact that, with four boys at home, the only mode we know is “go”. If I’m being honest, though, it’s because I don’t choose to slow down and breathe.
Our June was non-stop from the last day of school to our return from vacation (a roadtrip to Michigan to visit my family). Most of the vacation I spent worrying the kids weren’t having “enough” fun. When I think back now, it was a blast hanging out at my dad’s house. Grandpa has candy dishes sitting out for the taking; he lets you eat in the living room; and you have free reign on the all the pop and chips you can handle.
I came home with two extra kids in tow: my niece and nephew so then I spent more time worrying about whether they were enjoying their vacation.
Now it’s July, and I’m trying to find some semblance of a routine. Since I make my own routine, I have no excuses for the speed of my life. I’ve decided I’m going to spend my birthday month practicing the fine art of simply ‘being.’
I have a raft and a slushie maker, and I even purchased a few drink umbrellas from the dollar store to enhance the atmosphere. It’s the lazy days of summer, and–gosh darn it–that’s how I plan to spend my Summer of 2011!
Thankfully, one thing I don’t have to worry about is my monthly scrapbooking. Here’s my June layout:
