It's summer time!

So now that school is out, I have 3 months with my kids home, and I don't know what to do with them. HA. no. I guess one advantage to homeschooling is you aren't thrown into that "what do I do with them" feeling! I have that feeling aLOT actually :p I do want to make summertime fun for them summertime for every kid! It's been hard to come up with things to do without having a car here at home, but I did manage to fill up their little calendar of June with things to do! Autymn informed me today that "Tomorrow is sorbet making day" :) So, I'm glad she is looking forward to it!

Summer time also means..GARDENING! I was really apprehensive about starting a garden this year with having 2 lil ones already taking up lots of time and energy, but I'm glad Michael talked me into it! It is so rewarding to go out and grab a huge bundle of fresh green beans for dinner, or pick a few zucchinis to make some bread! The corn and pumpkins are almost ready too! Yes. I said pumpkins lol WAY too early for those things to be popping up, lol I haven't decided if I'm going to make a jack-o-lantern for July 4 yet or not! haha Hey, I'll start a new tradition. Be kinda cool actually. A bunch of pumpkins carved with a flag on em, and fireworks going off in the distance! Very patriotic I think. Who knows, maybe we'll grow pumpkins year round...carve a heart and put it on the porch for your valentine! HAHA

So that's been my life lately :) Audrey has been potty trained for a week now, SO glad that is over! and we are saving a good $50 a month on diapers now! And having just one in diapers nice :)
