A Bright Spot...

Well, it's summer vacation! I really enjoy the laid-back lack of routine, and the gorgeous sunshine. What I don't enjoy are fighting children. It's currently "day 2" and we've had our ups and downs. My plan is to keep busy and active and maybe even let my kids help me in the kitchen. This is fairly challenging for me, because I find my kitchen to be an escape. Too often I'll encourage the kids to watch TV while I cook, just for a few minutes of peace.

Some days, I just have to stop and count my blessings. Today the girls were busy.
First there was air hockey with slippers and a penny!

And then there was this darling little set-up! I'm trying to be realistic that our house [this summer] will never be totally clean and picked up. And that's okay (just keep reminding me).


  1. I love your honesty! I'm the same way. Except my escape is anywhere with a book - the best spot is my porch.

  2. Kirsten,

    Love the new look. I cannot imagine what it would be like to have the whole summer to deal with. This will probably be the summer that you pass your love of cooking on to at least one of those girls.
