Since Bri started school a few years ago we've been on a year-round schedule which means a short summer. I've always felt like we have to pack as much as we can into those few weeks, and always felt like we didn't get to do all the things we wanted before school started.
This year is different. We have a normal 3 month long summer. We aren't even half way through and we are going a little crazy. I feel like I have to be doing something fabulous every day and I'm failing miserably. So may of the things I want to do cost money and the thing that are free, it's just too hot to do. Also, I don't want to go alone. My sisters are working moms, so they can't go in the day. I've tried to make plans with a few of my friends but it seems they are busy with other friends. I wanted to do some hiking but I worry about taking the girls without help. We also like to do things as a family, so the thought of going bowling with out Daddy to see the girls the first time makes me sad. I guess I need to just quit being afraid and go do it, cuz these girls are going a little crazy and taking me with them.

I feel the same way about doing things with my kids without dad. I have realized that doing fun things and making memories with the kids, is my job. We do a lot with dad and wish he could do EVERTHING with us, but he can't. So we play hard during the week and on the weekends too :) Hey if you want to get together, call I would love to hang out. We are still year round and start the 26th, but we could get together next week.
