Simple Summer Fun

and now it is almost over...

can you hear me sobbing?

LOL!  I was hoping our reno would be finished by now, but we are a couple of weeks away.  That means I start the year disorganized.  Ready for my new phrase in life...It is what it is!

We had a nice summer...a bit different because we had to be out of the house a lot, yet were tied to the house.  Steve helped a bunch with the gutting and installing, and I had to give my two cents throughout.  That meant more local trips as opposed to big day trips or even a vacation.  We hit the parks in our county, went to the pool, saw some movies, went to the sprinkler park and played outside.  A lot. 

Funny thing is that my kids are happiest outside in the yard, making their own fun.  Sometimes I think that we overplan for our children.  We want to expose them to many opportunites, but I wonder about good old fashion imagination and play.  When I was growing up, we made our own way and we were not always entertained by our parents.  I try to find a good balance.

The simple things are great! Give my kids the hose and they are all set!

I used the sketch and participated in the My Mind's Eye summertime challenge.  Using the sketch allowed me to focus on the details and complete this layout in about an!

One more week of summer.  Simple fun here we come!
