Lazy Days of Summer
Ms. Quality Time...the brains behind the whole thing.
Little Man and Tenderheart in the "bunk bed".
As a kid, summer was far and away my favorite time of year...no school, staying up later, sleeping in, playing outside, Kool-aid and popsicles every day! We do not live in a neighborhood like mine was growing up. There are not kids on our street for my children to ride bikes with or go to the creek with (nor is there a creek to go to) or play kick ball with. My children have each other, and that's it. That doesn't stop there fun though. They are staying up later (too much later for me!), sleeping later (I love waking up at 9:00!), playing outside, coming in only when it thunders or they need Kool-aid or popsicles. I limit their sugary things most of the time, but I figure they're burning it all off outside in the summertime. This past weekend, the kids decided they wanted to build a teepee. It didn't work well, so they recruited Daddy for help. It didn't make it to Monday. They had taken scrap fabric outside to cover it on Monday after breakfast, only to discover that it had fallen since Saturday. BruCrewDad and I had given them permission to take fabric out and cover it. BruCrewDad said, "Take it and be creative!" They decided to take his advice and make do. Here's what they came up with.
