Lately We Love......

Spending time with daddy

 Carrots from our garden

Happy boy waking up from his nap

Fruit from cherry trees in our back field 

Wonders of Mother Nature 

Playing in the sand 

 Working on sewing

Sweet Nevada sunsets.

I'm really enjoying our summer break. The kids are all a year older & I've been able to let them have a little more freedom to play in the yard without my constant supervision. Even Omri will head out the door & play in the sand. I keep a watchful eye & check on him every three minutes or so but I think it's important for the kids to be able to explore without constant supervision. I love listening to them play when they don't know I'm around. I hear a lot of talk about "sweeties" & "superheroes" so cute. Those little imaginations hard at play. We've gotten into quite a nice routine around here. Waking up & enjoying a lazy breakfast, then swimming in the pool. Next thing you know it's time for lunch & some more swimming or a movie & then dinner & bed. I'm pretty sure I could count on 1 hand the number of times these little ones have actually bathed. I guess I don't see the point when they practically live in the pool.

Zoe starts school this Monday & Aris next Monday. I will miss our routine but a new one will slowly emerge. A fall schedule filled with the promise of school supplies, cooler nights & crisp mornings. The promise of pumpkins, leaves & shorter day. And I love fall......but for now I'll enjoy the last few moments of summer with the girls.
