Hula hoops and sunshine
Summer. Just saying the name makes me happy. I love the idea of warm sunshine and icy popsicles, walks in a damp forest and deep-end dives into the pool. The kids are finally off school for the year, and we slept in for the past two days. There was no sounds of nagging to hurry and get dressed, no last minute adjustments to the backpack or lunches. When the kids woke, they cozied up with their pillows and stuffed animals on the couch and watched their favorite cartoons with sleepy eyes and bowls of Cheerios. We played legos, painted pictures, made banana pancakes together, and hula hooped in the sunshine.
