Lazy Summer Fun

We have been enjoying a wonderfully relaxing summer lounging by the pool. 

The kids are baked golden brown and I have a gorgeous farmer tan. 

You can never pass up a sunny day without going outside to enjoy the weather.  It's the rules.  So that's where you can find me most days.  I'm outside watching the kids swim and reading a book by the pool.

In fact I'm enjoying the lazy summer attitude so much my kids are beginning to question me.

Emerson:  Mom.  When are you going to make dinner?  I think you'd better start making it because it's getting late and I'm hungry.  (Time-- 4:50 in the afternoon)

Me:  It's summer time so we're not on a schedule.  I'll get to it soon.

Zoey:  Mom, I'm tired and it's time for you to put me to bed.

Me:  Ummm... OK.  (Let me assure you it was only about 10 minutes past her bed time but she ripens for bed quicker than a week old banana.)

Breckyn:  Mom.  I think we need to plan some activities and leave the house.

Me:  Don't you want to just swim and enjoy the outdoors?  (It's free and I don't have to pack the car.)

Apparently I have failed to teach them the art of lounging around.  I'm working on it but these guys are a hard sell.  Anyone want four very timely organized children to keep you on schedule?  They are better than any alarm clock I tell ya.

...and if you need me, I'll be lounging by the pool.

Just wait until they are teens....the art of lounging will be second nature by then;)

We've had a good mix of work and play. Some of the best day those are the lazy relaxing days, especially by a pool!

Sounds like my kids. Phoenix freaked out yesterday because I was still in bed when he woke up. He wandered around the house calling for me. Then Dave(who had just gotten home from work said, "She's probably in bed still, buddy." When Phoenix came in to my room he said, "what's wrong with you mom, are you dying? Why aren't you getting breakfast ready?" Funny little things aren't they?

Lazy days are the best. As long as no plans to do anything.
