Summer

I really though I would be blogging like crazy this summer. No running kids to school, oh the time I would have. Nope…..four kiddos home all day equals busy busy me. It was the first summer in 10 years that the kids and I didn’t go to Canada. Insert sad face…..with the house we just had too much going on.

Two more weeks of summer vacation then the kids start back to school. Little T will be starting first grade and will be gone all day (another sad face). And little C man is going to be starting pre K. Just three mornings a week but he is my sidekick. It will be a big change for me. (Wow third sad face). šŸ˜‰.

So here are a few photos of our summer fun. Just because šŸ˜„.

Caught an armadillo (digging up under the trailer) and relocated it to the other property down by the dry creek.

The kids found tad poles in June and we watched them turn into toads. We just let these tiny little guys go this week. It was a fun experience.

I had an old window frame I found in the old barns and I had an old chalk board that someone gave me. Cole put them together. I have had this for awhile and I like to put quotes up on it. Big C asked me if he could write the quote…..we picked one off my ‘words’ Pinterest board. And it has perfectly suited our summer. We have had some building stress but…….there are just too many beautiful reasons to be happy

Thanks for reading. On Monday our framers are going to be back to put up scaffolding to fix the trusses. Rods are here…..I will keep you posted.

  1. Thank you for sharing these lovely summer photographs and memories. I have never seen an armadillo before! What a fascinating little creature.

    • That was the first armadillo I had ever caught….and the first one my kids had ever seen. It was a very strong little guy but very peaceful. (Apparently they can bite and do scratch). His little ears were so cute. He reminded me of a little mini rhino, with all that armor.

    • It’s been a pretty adventurous summer. I will say these kids have not been bored. My older son and I were tearing down a fence, which required tools. He is 9 so right up his ally. He said “Mom, summer vacation lots of people go to the beach….right now I would much rather be here doing this”. It was pretty cute.
