first day of summer

Yesterday was our first day of summer. It was a long day, because we stayed at home all day, until later in the evening. It's just so darn hot outside I have felt like staying inside. The kids read books, colored, played video games, watched movies, and I heard a million times " I am so bored!". This weekend we are headed back up to NWA, so hopefully seeing their daddy will perk them up. We have plans to go to Branson and we are going to a Naturals minor league baseball game. Should be fun.
After all that staying home yesterday, we went to get snow cones at about 8:30. The weather had cooled off and this mama is addicted. I love those things....we tried a new place close to home called "blizzard beach". They had cute stuff for the kids to play on. The girl said they were getting a swingset today.
I let the kids catch lightening bugs for awhile before they had to come inside. They love doing that.
Today, we have to go to Target for a babyshower gift. And we have to get the boys haircut. And the Yukon needs an oil change. I'm telling you, it was easier to run errands when I had 3 babies. Now, they fight and squabble, beg, complain, etc...I just thought it was hard when I had a two year old, a one year old, and a newborn. All at once. I used to do it alone. Walmart trips with all three. People thought I was nuts. Sometimes I wish I could put one in the front part of the buggy, one in the back, and one in a sling. It was much easier, really.:)
But, I realize these days will be like those days and fly by too quickly. So I am going to cherish the fights, the whiny-ness, and all that comes with a 6, 8, and 9 year old. Because before I know it, they will be driving. They won't want to hang out with me. Their friends will take first place. And I'm sure that's coming all too soon!
