Hello lazy family weekends with no schedules, no obligations, no places to be.
Hello gardening and replanting the poor container garden that withered and died because mama was too busy feeding a different little creature.
Hello ladybugs. You have quite the feast awaiting you on the rose bushes. Goodbye aphids. You will not be missed.
Hello sleepy babies inside the cool house on the couch.
Hello teeny succulent. I like you. I just wish you weren’t so dang expensive.
Hello summer days that are finally warm enough to really enjoy the water play and not freeze to death in the cool ocean breezes typical to our town.
Hello fun daddies who help make the slip n slide 100 times more awesome.
Hello abundant water and a good God who blesses us in the sweetest ways.
Hello silly girl who loved the journey…
…but hated the splashy ending.
Hello lunch outside and sisters stealing sandwiches.
Hello summer babies who eat their lunch outside too and then nap some more on the patio furniture.
I will deeply miss these sweet unscheduled weekends when the hustle and bustle of sports teams make their way into our family. For now, I will treasure our family days and keep organized sports at arm’s length for as long as I possibly can.
I love this season of our lives.
