Today was the last day of school for our kids. They had a half day (although Sarah also had a half day yesterday). I love my kids, but life is a lot more stressful when they are all home all day! My kids are not the quiet, keep to yourself type of children that I was. Mine are loud and boisterous and quite often argumentative. I'm glad for the hour between when the kids go to bed and Dan gets up for work. It is so calm and peaceful.
Today was a hot day. It is currently 83 at 8:30 p.m. The kids decided they wanted to go out and run through the sprinkler. So I had to find swimsuits for everyone. Sarah's did not fit. At all. Not even close. So I dug out some old swimsuits of mine. I pinned up the straps on one, but other wise, it fit her! So not ready for that. I have been the same height since 8th grade. She has progressed much faster along the maturity path than I did, so who knows when she'll reach her full height. I also had to find the sprinkler they use for playing in, which I couldn't seem to find. I also wanted to find the water balloons. I could find the filling nozzle that didn't fit the hose, but not the one that did fit. Meanwhile, I just wanted to read. (I needed to read since the review is due Wednesday). I finally did find the water balloon nozzle, but then I couldn't get the sprayer off the hose! I had a few minutes of quiet until they all came bustling back in. And no one seems to remember that when it's hot outside, we need to keep the door closed to keep the heat out, or what to do with wet things. At least I don't have to set an alarm to be up to get Sarah on the bus by 6:30 for a few months.
