Want to wish all of the dads out there a Happy Father’s Day.
Happy New Year to my blog readers. Have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve.
I will get on a regular blogging post habit for this year. I just have been so busy. If you would like to see a certain series on my blog then please send me a message or comment it below.
As a parent of four energized kids I can’t wait for summer to come full time. It is getting tiring to pick up the house almost on an hourly schedule. At least in the summertime I can get the kids to go outside and enjoy the outdoors as well as any messes they make will also be outside.
So that is enough of “the pick up after kids’ part” of the writing and onto why we are eager for summer. It is a time to go the beach at the lake by our home, to go to the local swimming pool that has a couple nice slides in it, and to just be outside as a family and enjoying it.
We are big on spending time outside of the house. We get a yearly pass to the swimming pool and almost every night during the week we are there. We like to take our kids to the lake as well as spend time looking at nature. We plan our vacation for sometime in the summer as well as any BBQs we are planning on having with the kids.
Bet it just gives the kids a fresh breath of freedom and not having to spend to whole day in the house. After a while playing in the house kind of becomes boring. Especially spending all winter inside due to the snow and cold weather we have here. It is also a sign that school is almost over and my kids about this time of the year start hoping for school to be over as soon as possible. I remember this thought as well when I was a child.
I remember playing in the parks, riding bicycles and playing pickup ball games during the summer months. As well as swimming and fishing. I like the summer months and so does my kids.
What are you favorite memories of summer as a kid or with your own kids? If you are not a summer type of person then which season is yours and why? Feel free to leave your answer in the comments and I will respond to the questions you have.
Having two energized girls and two active boys can make an interesting day. My girls and the youngest boy sometimes put on a drama show or a dancing show depends on what they are pretending to be at the time.
Sometimes they just get between the TV and us to just dance or they dance to sometime on the TV as well. But there is not a dull moment in my house. My youngest daughter always tries to get me to dance with her and I do. We even danced this weekend at the church breakfast get together before service.
Sometimes dancing can be expensive like breaking a laptop by accidentally stepping on it. Since this post is a few days late, you can tell what happened. But it was still fun and enjoyable watching them dance.
Have you ever dance with your kids for no special reason at all but to just dance? Has there ever been a time something was broken by dancing on accident? Feel free to leave your answer in the comments and I will respond to the questions you have.
