Well - it's July first. Would you like to know what I've accomplished on my LONG summer "to-do" list? Nothing. Absolutely Nothing.
I haven't done touch-up paint, I haven't organized the garage, I haven't sorted the boys outgrown clothes, and I haven't done anything school related.
Truth be told - I'm kind of okay with that. I am LOVING doing "everyday" with my kids and have been soaking it up. Speaking of everyday, here's the past few...
I promise it was unintentional - but my girlfriends noticed that Griffin and I were matching with our ruffles and leopard headwraps and so Narci took a pic. Narci is a professional photographer and it shows... because check out miss G's smile and her hand on my shoulder! I DIE!!! hahaha
While we were swimming, Luke was finishing up his week at Sports Camp at the country club. They worked on golf and tennis in the morning, had lunch and swam in the afternoon. He had a blast and came home EXHAUSTED every day.
Speaking of exhausted.... Mason is in that weird stage where he's really not tired at 1:00 p.m. for a nap.... but by 5:00 he's EXHAUSTED. If he sleeps at 5:00 then he has a hard time going to bed at night. SIGH.
I got him up and he was playing Legos in his room, and about 10 minutes later I went to get him for dinner and found this...
Sweet, sleepy boy!!!
Friday afternoon GG rocked some red, white and blue...
And everyone went to bed early :)
Saturday morning Dave took all three kids to the library. This was G's first time and she was EXCITED and apparently shoe-less. I was at home cleaning (can I get an Amen for being able to vacuum without a little person attached to your leg??? It's the small things) :)
Apparently this locks and latches puzzle was a big hit - it's currently in my Amazon cart. Lets hope they find it equally entertaining in December. (sidenote: I am that weird person who takes care of a lot of Christmas shopping while I am off in the summer. I like to enjoy wrapping presents and all of that and I don't want to have to fight crowds in December. I also just ordered all three of my kids Halloween costumes. Check that off the crazy list!).
After lunch the boys headed outside to play and they spent several hours in the sandbox. They were wet, sandy, gross.... and CRAZY happy :) I'm not sure there's much they love more than being out in the sandbox.
They came inside and took baths - and then I found Mason passed out on our bed. Hopefully we'll get this no-nap thing down STAT!
My dad picked Luke up to take him to see Maleficent, and Mason's consolation prize was eating dinner sitting on the counter...
... and eating Nutella straight out of the jar. :)
Paci - check.
Backpack - check.
In case you're curious - I wore one of my favorite dresses (I blogged about it here) - and Mason asked me again if I was getting married. hahaha
My dad was in Canada for the past week and a half and he brought back this picture from my Grandparents house. That is me and my Granny circa 1986. Look like anyone we know???
I was two in the picture, but I still think she definitely favors me. I also see some Mason in there as well.
The boys played with some giant bubble thing (honestly - I have no clue what to call it!) that my dad brought them from Canada - and they had so much fun!
Monday was a super "normal" day. Dave was off and he took the kids on errands while I worked on Slightly Askew projects (I was delusional in thinking that I could get more accomplished during the summer.... hello three kids all day! hahaha I'm moving slowly, but surely). They got my van inspected, ran to the Wal-Mart to get a pump for our little pool, etc.
Monday night we met Dave's parents, grandmas, youngest brother Stephen and his girlfriend (SHOUTOUT, CYNTHIA!) for dinner. Stephen rides a motorcycle and my boys are infatuated with his helmets...
I didn't even notice until someone on IG pointed it out - but check out Mason's super appropriate shirt!
So, in conclusion...
Have I been super productive? No.
Have I been having a great time? Yes.
The. End. :)
