Scenes from summer

My children return to school on Monday and, I must say, I’m going to miss the freedom of summer days. Minimal scheduling, no hustle and bustle, freedom to stay up and sleep late. Meals when I felt like fixing them and snacks when I felt like eating them… happy children who had more TV, computer and Wii time than they’d had in months.

Just the entire relaxation of summer will be missed. The important thing though is we have the memories – they will tide us over until next summer. If you’re beginning to already miss the summer as well then here are some pictures to tide you over and, I hope, entertain you.

Anna enjoyed her 6th birthday party… a pool party that was fun – and wet! – for all.

Treat bags & water guns… Oh I wish you could have seen the water balloon battles the group had. Everyone was soaked and happy.

At the park my silly little monkeys decided – with mommies prompting – to do freeze photos. The results are pretty funny.

My favorite is the one below on the left. Isn’t Amareah’s expression (in the background) perfect?

Really happy my children convinced me to get out of the house.

What’s for dinner?

I open the freezer and what do I see?

A nice frozen pizza staring at me.

Spinach, chicken, tomatoes and cheese,

It’s the perfect choice for kids you need to please.

Sweet corn on the side, water to drink

There is very little to put in the sink.

Bedtime is coming, a jig I can feel.
