Summer is in full swing over here. While I don't like having commitments during the summer, I do like having a routine. We've fallen into quite a nice one, and it goes something like this:
Mornings are for sleeping in, then errands or jobs or play. Lunch is our main meal, as it is better to use the stove and oven before the heat of the afternoon sets in. After lunch comes my favorite part of the day - quiet time. Everyone finds a book to read while Elliot takes a little nap. Once he's up, we head to the pool. We're usually worn out by the time we get home, so dinner is something light, like a smoothie or cereal or popcorn. I've been letting everyone stay up later than usual. I tell them they can read in their beds for as long as they'd like. Reading in bed late at night is one of my favorite memories from my childhood, and I love that our lazy mornings make this a possibility. We've made sure to stock up on lots of books from the library.
Here's to a low-key, easy summer!
