We really try to soak up the last few days of summer (we’re down to under 2 weeks). I love the days when we have few plans and can do a lot of lounging. Sorta like this:
The weather has warmed up, so we’ve been hanging out at the pool pretty much every day. Sunday, we were there five hours! Even with sunscreen, Campbell is getting a tan. A weird one, from wearing three different suits.
Our peaches are ripe in the backyard so the other night Campbell and I peeled & sliced a bunch with intentions of making a pie. We had waffles w/ peach topping for dinner one night and peach crisp another, but no pie. After the first two things I realized I’m not super crazy about peach desserts and I lost my pie mojo.
Over the weekend I finished a coloring page that I started awhile ago. Using colored pencils takes a lot longer than markers but you can use shading, blending, etc. making it more fun. I really like the Enchanted Forest coloring book best of all.
Here’s another one from the same book:
Evan loves doing them too. We always take them to the coffee shop when we go.
Evan is doing really well in his horse lessons. We are currently exploring options to buy land to get a horse or maybe board a horse. And by “horse”, I mean two horses. Because, what fun is one horse?
Last week I took our dog to the DQ drive-through. I got her a small dish of vanilla and let her lick it on the way home. Except she got confused and thought it was naughty so she kept doing it really fast then looking away.
Other than that, I’ve been busy planning our new teacher orientation at work and working on the 5k that I organize (it’s this weekend!!). I got our age-group medals today. They’re pretty awesome!!
And running, yes, I still do that sometimes. 😉 I’m just not in the training mood this summer so I’ve just been running 3-4 miles for fun every other day or so, and that’s okay in my book!
What are you doing with your summer days? Does back to school time signal the end of summer for everyone or just teachers & kids?
