Summer Days

My husband is enjoying his 3 months off of work for summer break. I love having him around too!

It has been strange though. I cannot seem to figure out why my routines are so off track now. I guess it will take time before we establish a new routine. The little one is thrown off too, he has been waking up between 5 :20 ish and 6 am ish every morning for the past week. I love to get up early. The morning is the best part of the day. The quiet of the morning does it for me. I bask in the silence of my neighborhood.

I hate to say it, but the summer seems vapid so far. I have not really had any adventures worth mentioning. I went to the library, and of course my daily walks. Other than that I really don't even know what day it is without looking at a calender. I have just been hanging around.

I have been trying to plan activities, but it seems as if the great community things don't start until mid summer. We have been trying to fight boredom off by renting movies, playing outside and reading tons of books. Rolf has been waiting for several weeks, but finally his bouncy room comes in this week!

My Mother in Law has offered to buy a pop up pool for the backyard, and we are looking forward to that. My husband and I both love to swim. Rolf loves the water too. I admit I am a little nervous about a toddler and a backyard pool, but my husband assures me Rolfie will be fine, we will buy a swimming vest/suit thingy for him as soon as the pool is delivered and of course we will have a pool cover.

See, I told you. What a vapid summer!


  1. Vapid Summer? It will get better. What I wouldn't give for some nice weather here. We have had rain, and it has been cold. I had to start the fire in June!!

    Be sure to get a swimming suit that has the floats within the suit itself. I cannot remember what they are called, but they are awesome!

  2. I am envious that you enjoy mornings. I hate getting up early and as you can see from my post time, my little one decided to do just that this morning.


Thanks for leaving me a comment sweet stuff! I am always glad to hear from you!
