Summer break is finally here!!

I don’t know if I’m going to stick with the local school schedule next year or not. We get so tired of school going until the 3rd week of June! Of course, we like not starting until after Labor Day… And if I switch it this year we’re going to have a really short summer…

Anyway, yesterday was the first official day of summer vacation. I worked on the blog some in the morning, took a nice long walk, did some family stuff with the kids at 10 and then let them play outside until lunch time.

(The pics are from my iTouch. I was relaxing and didn’t have my good camera outside.)

Of course they asked if they could play in the water. And, of course, I said yes since it is summer. Some little girl was very exicted!

I was pretty excited, too. I got a little sun on my legs and read a book.

Every time I read Charlotte Mason I am floored by how insightful and brilliant that woman was! I may have to start doing a little blog series on the things I’m reading. They are too good not to share!

I got the big boys to watch the littles for me so I could make quick hot dog lunch and we had it outside on a blanket.

We were interrupted by the lawn care guy that wanted to mow the grass. We were almost done anyway, and the grass needed some attention. I was glad to see him! (And blessed that the landlord sends someone to take care of that chore for us!!) The little two took great naps after lunch. I’m hoping to sufficiently wear them out again today! 🙂
