Man oh man!!! It's so funny before kids how much you looked forward to summer and now summer is so insane. The 2 oldest were in preschool this past year, which was only 2 hours a few days a week but hot damn without preschool the days are just so much longer. I used to think it wasn't a huge thing the have them gone since it was only 2 hours, but you also loose all the time you spent getting them ready and also driving to and from. So that was a good 3 hour chunk of your day that was burned quite nicely.
The past 2 weeks I have adjusted to having all 4 boys all day long, aka complete full on crazy town! I wish I was more of a go-getter with getting us out of the house but it's honestly such a drag (literally). Packing up all 4 kids is just not my idea of fun, so I just stay home 9 times out of 10 and we play inside or in the back yard! I have found so much peace with spending most of the day outside. Hello cleaner house ;) Jordan has been working on our patio for 3 months, so once that is done I plan to honestly LIVE outside, and take all the sticky watermelon mess outdoors.

Is it bad that I am looking forward to vacation bible school in a few weeks. I really think they should consider taking kids 2 and under though. I mean Sam and Jude also need to learn about God! Doesn't seem fair to me, haha I do not know what I would do if all 4 boys were occupied for a few hours. It would be a freaking vacation for me. But alas, I will get a lot of stuff done just having the older gone that week for a few hours at bible school.
I also signed the older 2 up for soccer starting next week, 1 hour every Friday, should be interesting to say the least. Reminds me I need to order them shin pads....yippie!!
What are your tips for summer fun? What activities do you do??
