Hi friends, oh boy it's been hot. Like over 100 hot, every day. My creativity had a bit of a heat stroke. My air conditioned living room lulled me inside. I read an entire book. Actually I read two. The boys watched more movies than usual. Practically every time the boys asked for otter pops I said yes. Gina's favorite word is popsicle, and she looks so darn cute whenever she asks I can't bear to tell her no (I'm in trouble, aren't I?).
So I fell off the 100 Days of Summer bandwagon. Maybe it'll just be 80 days. Or 50...
We went outside to check the mail and burned our feet on the pavement. We watered the garden. (Ok, Luke watered the garden and I paid him 25 cents a day.) I picked peaches. We checked up on our pumpkins, which are growing quite nicely. We checked on our puppies, which are also growing quite nicely. I pushed Gina on the swing and the boys played on the hammock. And then we went back inside and rewarded ourselves for bearing the heat with, you guessed it, a popsicle.
If it cooled down below the temperature of hades in the evening, Nate played soccer with the boys while I cleaned up dinner dishes. And such has been our life the last week or two.
You might have noticed a tree house post that went out a week ago, but if you tried to read it, it didn't load. Well, I tried to do a tree house "highlights" post and I even made a little video, but apparently when you tried to load 50 pictures and a video, WordPress gets mad at you. Ha! So I deleted the entire post. I'll redo it later, along with a few other little projects we've done. (So if you notice a few rapid fire OutsideKid posts, that's why!)
Thanks for following along this summer, and for your comments. They really do brighten my day! I hope you all have had more outside fun success this week than I have.
