Summer Session

The days of waking the kids and dragging their butts off to day care are gone for the moment. They get to sleep late. Well at least as late as they care to. Which really isn't late at all. They get to watch some cartoons, color and draw and go swimming. My Mom has been laid off for about a year now so to save me some dough she offered to come to my house and watch the kids for about 6 weeks this summer. I jumped on it. It gives Aedan an actual summer vacation free from running and structure. And did I mention it saves me approximately $300 a week even if I am paying my Mom.

It's only day 2 and I can tell the kids are enjoying it. :) I know I am. It's alot easier not rushing to get them all ready and out the door. And I get home earlier without having that stop at daycare to pick up.

I miss not having them to chat with on the way home and their goofiness in the car but it is only 6 weeks so I guess I can deal with it for now.

That's fantastic! My mom is retired from teaching, but still puts in a lot of hours pastoring a church. She is taking a month of July hiatus, however, and has offered to come over and tutor the girls on the mornings Isaiah goes to summer school ~ much to Mariah's chagrin...;)
