I don't mind that, we'll live every late night up, we'll relish the later morning sleeps, and we'll fill our days with whatever we feel like doing at the time, moments. (<----- mental note: I will be complaining about the struggles and frustrations of getting back on track this school year, approximately 6 days after school starts.. and I'm pretty sure I will try to pawn it off as being all the kids fault.. feel free, not to point this out to me) I'm not yet surrendering to summer vacation's end and I've got big plans for this week… I will not go down without a fight… that would simple be out of character.
With that said, at risk of sounding very surrendering to summer vacation's end…I'm overly satisfied by this summer, and all that it has taught us. I feel like Nate and I were successful in deepening the rivets to the values, that we see as important characteristics. That efforts are worth making, to spend time, with the ones who are important to spend time with... working hard justifies playing hard...and a day 'wasted' is one that needs to be appreciated for just that.
This weekend we did a little of it all. We swam, we BBQ'd, we had fires, we eat s'mores, we spent time with family, we back to school shopped, we ran through sprinklers, and picnicked outside. This morning, the skies are dark, the winds are strong, and the rain is pouring. The kids are sleeping, the coffee is brewing, and I am more than ready to spend the hours, baking cookies, watching movies, and not rushing any of it. I'm not trying to avoid the inevitable, in fact I am looking forward to the structure school will bring, but that day is not today.
Today, we will burry ourselves in a 'wasted' day. A perfect way to continue with our summer vacation's last hurrah.
