I Finally Understand

I never understood why my Grandmother always hung her clothes outside. She just would tell me it's my way to release from stress. So growing up I did not get it. Fast forward to now at age 27 with 3 kids of my own. I love hanging my clothes first thing in the morning after I wash them. I totally understand why my grandmother loved it too. I find it so peaceful to hang the clothes while the gentle morning breeze blows around me. I am not looking forward to winter time and having to dry them inside. This is the most relaxing part of my day. What is your release from stress and to relax?

First Day of Summer!

Today was the first day of summer and so hot and humid. Let the kids go swimming and have fun with water activities. With as hot as it has been makes me wonder what is in store for us the rest of the summer. Last year was wow in the heat department and this year is already getting there. So it got me thinking, how do I get the kids to still have fun but still stay cool. I am going to be brainstorming over the weekend to come up with fun things to do and if you have any ideas please feel free to comment and let me know. Time to relax and read a book. See everyone in the morning.

Ticks Are Out of Control

So this year I have noticed (since we live out in the country) that the ticks are out of control this year. Even if we just go out in the yard to play we end up with at least 3 between the kids and I. Plus there is this really tiny one this year that I have not seen before. Little bugger is sneaky I tell ya. This has put me on high alert when the kids are outside because the last thing anyone needs is someone with lime disease. Also the mosquito's come out before it is even dark out this year. Hopefully next summer it is not as bad but we just have to make it through this summer.

Summer is here!!!

So excited to finally have our pool up. The last two days with humidity we have been in high 90's or in the 100's. The kids love the pool and I am working on a great tan. I know by the end of summer though I will be wanting the heat gone. What fun things do you do with your kids in the summer?
