So far summer has been a huge success. There always seems to be a little difficulty in the transition to being home all together, all day. Although I like to think we have a pretty harmonious house, the oldest (10) has lately found it his job to make an argument over anything. Usually I'm up for the challenge. My logic against his. Game on.
But one afternoon it was wearing on me, as he fought with his brothers.
"James. (Insert lecture here). If you keep acting like this, this is going to be a loooong summer."
Glaring at me with defiant eyes, "Well I want this summer to last forever."
Game over. He wins.
Summer forever! What a fun idea!
So here's to a day on the lake, and a night in a tent. To the ice cream truck's song, and the cricket's lullaby. To the mountains smothered in wild flowers, and a baby's face covered in popsicle slime. To a hot afternoon, and a cold drink. To a game on the tramp, and at the ball park. To a picnic lunch, and an evening barbeque. To a long road trip, and a short nap.
Here's to all good things of summer! And to many, many more.
