Summer is upon us. The heat is glaring down and scorching our skins. The long days of light keep us going and going. My house is full of children from sun up to sun down. The days seem to be speeding by, much like that of when I was a child and on summer break. I feel out of control. The house is a disaster. My to do lists go undone. The laundry continues to pile up. But I have never been happier.
The sounds of laughter from all the kiddos feels my soul with a warmth that even the blazing summer sun of Texas can not compete with. I am finding peace with allowing the to do lists to go undone in exchange for the amazing words and thoughts of children learning a new idea, or thought, or concept, and sharing this remarkable moment of knowledge with me. I am embracing the fact that I can not plan out and predict every movement and sound of every day. And by finally embracing this notion an entire remarkable world of youth has become my oyster.
The children and I have a multitude of fun activities and trips and ideas planned for the summer. Every morning we decide as a team what to do. We let the world guide us, with a little push from slight planning. It is amazing. And fun. And I am loving it. The kids are loving it. The laundry will get done, in the fall perhaps. The dishes will get done when we are hungry, although there is walmart and paper plates. And my Blogging will get published when I have a spare moment and blogger does not give me a message stating it is temporarily out of service.
I have so much to share with you about our happenings already, however I must pace myself. The days right now are filled with children giggling and me working a real paying job from home until the wee hours of the night followed by a repeat, repeat, repeat, every day! So check back often, you never know when that free moment of insanity may lend itself to me and POOF i just might hit publish!
