leisurely summer days?

Every time summer rolls around, I tell myself that this year it's going to be more leisurely. We're not going to be sooo busy, running around doing all of the things. Then summer happens and we do all of the things and fall into bed exhausted at the end of our days and then I remember that for us, that's what summer seems to be for. Mini adventures, sparkly days with friends, house projects, garden love....

I guess we'll save leisurely for the Wisconsin winter days.

The library teen group took it to the park with boffer swords.

I absolutely love finding time to spend with my girls one on one. It gives us a chance to connect in a way that is unique to each one.

Yesterday there were four silly teens running around our house and the woods surrounding our property for over ten hours. Today I spent several hours at the community pool with four kiddos between the age of 5 and 10. I may actually catch up on this blog one day. There's so much more to share, (a teenage birthday, a party at a cranberry bog, a cave tour, a nose piercing, camping, waterfalls, a new pet . . .) but today is not the day. I'm happy with getting a little further along for now.

 Time to get some sleep and I'm excited to see what tomorrow will bring. Good night all.
