Today’s prompt.


Welcome to Summer Vacation!  I was telling my mom that I am a better summer vacation mom than I am school year mom.  When June rolls around, I have officially checked out.  I dream of lazy afternoons with impromptu water fights , long evening walks through “fancy” neighborhoods, iced tea, sticky smooches from ice cream covered kids, and the smell of sunblock and bug spray.  I love summer time… Until August 1st.

Welcome summer bordeom….”Mom I’m bored, there’s nothing to do…”  to which I answer, ” If you tell me that you’re bored again, I am going to make you do chores until your fingers fall off.”

Welcome sand covered floors, stinky feet, and ticks.

Welcome super high electricity bill, because no matter how many times I tell them to “Shut the door.”  My boys don’t shut it behind them.

Welcome summer vacation, now how many days until school starts again?

  1. yum on the ice cream!! I hope you guys have a great Fourth! I’m sure you are heading out to Laurel!


  2. I am so with you on this page, the house can fall apart and the kids can eat what ever they want in the Summer, but say I’m bored, and they have to go and clean their room. Summer is so good that way.

  3. Love your lists of what summer ‘welcomes’ inot our lives. Being only July 1st yesterday I am hoping to ward off the boredness of things for at least another 6 weeks. Have a blessed day.

  4. I like your honesty and your picture:). And, as a firstime visitor to your page, I love your layout and colors!
