Lazy Days of Summer

When summer rolls around each year... I let out a groan.... no more Tues/Thurs mornings to myself to get things done.  No more breaks from the crying, fighting, whining, begging, and complaining.

BUT, I have to say there are some perks to summer.  No more packing lunches (4 lunches).  No more unpacking 1/2 eaten lunches and cleaning all the stuff.  No more cleaning out school bags.  No more RUSHING around getting 4 kids out of bed, teeth brushed, clothes on, beds made, hair fixed, shoes on, etc. and out the door by 8:45.

Given the triplets no longer have naps, but quiet time I feel I can finally let them sleep as long as they want, so I'm no longer dragging them all out of bed at 7:00, but I let them roll out at their leisure between 7:00 and 8:00.  Everyone is always up by 8:00 and then we take our time getting ready.

SO... while there are a lot of perks to school, there are also some perks to the summer schedule...

    Love all these shots. And keep enjoying this schedule while it lasts.

  3. You know I am loving that afgahn!
    Have a great week girl!

  4. Very cute series of photos. Love the colors.

  5. Oh how I love the summer schedule too! Ours emerge between 7 & 8. All year I try to let them sleep as long as they like- they do so much better in school when they sleep in. We do work through school all summer long- but I love the break in all the other activities in the afternoons that tend to put stress on the mornings to get things wrapped up quickly. It's nice to just have our days to schedule out as we like. Makes for some great moments to capture the kids being themselves! Like you did here- once again, beautiful beautiful shots of her. I am just so in love with those curls-
