I don’t know how I feel about this whole impending summer vacation thing. Whether I’m for or against, it, it’s coming.
Pro: I can work out before breakfast without waking up at 5:30am.
Con: I have to work out before breakfast because the kids are around All. Day.
Pro: I don’t have to make lunch every morning.
Con: I get to listen to all the requests, complaints, and opinions related to lunch in person.
Pro: My husband loves the weather.
Con: There simply aren’t words for how much I despise the heat.
Con: A dog swimming eventually comes inside…
Pro: No fitting errands around car line time.
Con: Taking kids on errands.
Pro: Flowers grow without any effort on my part.
Con: So do weeds.
Pro: Wildlife everywhere.
Con: Bugs, too.
Pro: No brutal, daily, grinding school and activity schedule.
Con: Random and varied camp scheduled punctuated by kids’ ideas for activities.
In the end, I guess it’s a wash. At least it’s a change, giving us time to stretch and flex different muscles for living.
I have a feeling this summer heralds lots of growth for us. Besides, despite their current infinitely annoying habits, the kids are a lot of fun. I plan to take every excuse to hang with them, enjoying this time between diapers and driving.
