Summer Break Happenings

So school has been out for 2 weeks and the kids are busy with summer camps AND lounging around the house when they’re free. I love not being rushed through the mornings and waking up a little later (I love to sleep).

“Babygirl,” as I affectionately call my oldest, my daughter, loves baking. She’s not so keen on cooking(that’s for my middle one, the boy), woke up today and decided she wanted to make chocolate muffins, she’s a chocoholic, I wonder who she gets that from;) I digress. Anyways, I was working in my home office when I smelt the warm whiff of baked chocolate floating through the house. I just love those homey aromas that come from home baked goods, don’t you? 

Summer breaks to me are all about slowing down and catching up as a family doing all the things we love, and creating those priceless memories that I so cherish. What are you guys getting up to with your kids or on your own this summer?

  1. Thanks for sharing! Mmm, wish I could taste a piece of that chocolate heaven!! My 9 year old is a true homebody and the 8 year old is a social butterfly… she will often run errands with her 24 year old bog brother and dad. Right now we are pet sitting and she’s out in our ginourmous back yard (size of a small park, i kid you not) with our fur guest. I definitely agree that summer is about creating memories and really slowing down.. catching up on those playdates and letting the kiddos go to bed late!
