Summer Break

The girls have been out of school now for a little over a week. It's been nice not needing to get up and out the door every morning to get them to school. I've been taking advantage of it and sleeping in, which could pose as a problem the closer we get to school starting back up, but thankfully, we have five more weeks of summer break.

The girls finished school on Tuesday, June the 15th, and just as soon as that minimum day dismissal bell rang at noon, and Hannah made her way to the car, we were on our way to Disneyland. Going to Disneyland on the last day of school has become a tradition for us girls. We were meeting our dear friends, Scott and Paula, and together, we all pre-ordered picnic meals which gave us a reserved spot for World of Color. We still waited for the show for about two hours, but it's a lot less than I was originally planning on waiting, and it was well worth the wait. World of Color is a phenomenal water show and if you're a fan of Fantasmic!, World of Color blows that show out of the water. I can't wait to see it again!We've done a couple other things in the last week since our break started. The girls, along with their cousins, spent the night all together at my parents house. It was Gramma and Papa's Game Night and they had prizes, and made pizza, and lots of fun. We've spent one afternoon with longtime friends - the kids in the pool, and us moms sitting poolside watching our kids splash and play about. Overall, we've just kinda been easing into summer break. The final weeks leading up to the last day of school were so busy for me that it's been nice to just 'chill'. I've managed to blog all the recent events and get the girls' blogs caught up, obviously not staying caught up on this one. I've also read a 487 page book in the last 60 hours! It felt good to lounge about off and on during the day on the couch, reading. And laying in bed at night, reading. Now that the book is done, I must find another.

So that's where I've been, enjoying summer break, decompressing. But now, I think it's time to start working some fun into our break and make the most of the next 5 weeks before both the girls are in school ALL DAY!

I have been so busy since school ended but I am enjoying not having to be up so early. Your summer sounds like it's been so relaxing so far.

Relaxing and chilling is important too. Sometimes I think a summer can be too overscheduled and kids run from one event to the next and never have a chance to just be. Hope that you and the girls enjoy a nice relaxing, yet fun filled summer. Maybe we could find a movie or park date somewhere in those 5 weeks. :)
