A Day in My Life: Summer Addition {Inspiration Workshop}

What's a typical day in my life look like?

After a busy first-half of the summer, it feels like we're finally in a bit of a lull....
and enjoying it to the fullest!

As the kiddos climb down from their beds, with yawns and stretches, our day springs forth.

We snuggle on the couch.  The girls watch  cartoons.  And I enjoy my morning coffee.

And when the mood strikes, we head to the kitchen for breakfast.

The morning is filled with playtime:




(And breaking up fights.)

And also a lot of this..................................and this.


After lunch we have quiet time.
And then snack.

And then comes our favorite time:
Daddy is home!  (Yay for summer work hours!)

His arrival usually means it's time to swim!

The rest of the day is filled with projects, or soccer, or meetings, or movies, 
and just plain being together.

And then, the kiddos head off to bed.
And Hubby and I have time to finish projects, clean up, talk about our day, or watch our favorite TV shows.
(Thank goodness for DVR!)

So there you have it.
Our simple, but never boring,
and always changing life.

Summer is our down time, but soon September will come.  Lil' N will be off to full days of first grade (sniff!) and Lil' R will be back a preschool two mornings a week.  And when Hubby's hits "busy season" at work, he works more and more hours, and we see him less and less.

That's why we soak in these laid-back days like the summer sun.
