Good Morning Y’all! It seems like Thursday has arrived rather quickly this week. It has been unrelentingly hot but this morning I woke up to thunder and lightning and rain! So I’m sipping some Earl Grey and watching the rain.
I can’t say I’m unhappy about the rain either. We spent way too much time in the pool yesterday. The kids found the underwater camera and made videos of themselves most of the morning. By lunch time they were raiding the cupboards like the baby pirates they are. I have never seen them eat so much in one day. As Corbin says, ” I have the growing pain.” Yep. And he proceeded to eat two cheeseburgers, fries, a quart of strawberries and a lot of tea.
OU Boy came home early and it was Watch Me time. By 5 p.m. the boy was crashed in his underoos on the sofa and OU Boy was crashed in his bed. Charli and I were just staring into space. But it was one of those days when my babies were safe and making memories with us and I couldn’t help the huge smile on my face. I love those days. Lazy summertime. The house full of floats and pool toys and the kids brown and happy.
Tomorrow we start tennis lessons. Can’t wait for that one. Today we are stuck inside so we are watching a Nancy Drew movie and then going shopping for peaches. Which Corbin just discovered don’t always come in a can. And that brought up the Millions of Peaches song. I have not done one productive thing in 24 hours. And I’m learning that I’m okay with that.
Enjoy your Thursday! Sing in the rain or dream in the sun, just have fun.
