short lived



This is what I posted on Facebook this morning:

"Even though my kids would love for it to be super hot outside and for us to be heading to the lake (which will come soon enough), the first morning of summer break finds us (me) sitting on the couch sipping coffee in front of the fire while listening to the rain outside. I have to admit that all this makes me happy happy happy."

Then real life happened.

Kids started fighting; worn out from the busy first couple of days at school this week, they are short on sleep and loooooong on overdone activities.

It was time. Even on the very first day of summer break, I just knew it. 

Time to pull out my get-out-of-jail-free card.

I piled all the kids in the car and after a 25 minute drive through pouring rain we made it to civilization "town" where we had lunch at Dairy Queen and rented Red Box movies - both of which are a HUGE (and rare) treat in this house.

Right now the three older kids are laying on blankets in the living room zoning out watching a movie. Fischer is sleeping soundly in his bed. The house is quiet. It's still raining outside and, once again, I am happy happy happy.

Here's to everyone living through summer break!
