Summer Has Begun

My kids with their friends - Swimming & Milkshakes - ahhh!  The Life! 
Summer has begun in the Weldon household.  The temperatures in Arizona are now over 105 degrees which makes it officially hot.  I love summer, as life usually slows down a bit and the focus becomes more on family, hangout dates with friends, and swimming.  Of course there are also some of those lazy summer sleep-in days, for the kids at least. :-)  Usually summers can be a bit more work for Mom's as it seems there is an endless request for food, messy house always needing to be picked up and laundry overflowing, but I love that we do not have to be out the door to school at 7:30 am and my kids are now the age where I require much more responsibility in household chores and food prep. My favorite days are those that we spend in the pool and we come inside all sun kissed and cozy in for a sleepy movie to the end day.  I am trying to live in the moment and treasure these days, as I realize we are possibly just moments away from the kids having summer jobs and I will dream of their sleepy eyes and tussled hair emerging from the bedroom after 8:00 am.  Let the summer solstice begin . . .
