We've been hanging out our new house on the weekends while we renovate. I dubbed the house as our Summer Cabin. The amenities are similar to camping: Cell phones and great outdoor facilities without Internet or cable. No xbox or laptop. It's a great way to bring my Type A family together to relax. I can tell you it can be hard to SIT and relax when you are used to being on the go constantly and checking email and messages. The boys next door are the same ages as William and Scott! I love the outdoorsmanship those boys have.
My boys have had tons of swimming fun with Lewis and Clark. They've come up with one game after another. You know its a pleasure to see my boys being active and CREATIVE. I told them to get out of the pool the next time I couldn't keep my eyes on them and they decided to jump in the river instead, from the sea wall. As crazy of a thing that is to do, I am kind of glad to see my boys adventuring and doing new things. They are so proud to confess the kind of dangerous stuff they do. David thinks he's as big as the big boys. He does everything the rest does.
As hard as it is to slow down and relax its can be hard to get back to seriousness. If I don't go to work tomorrow it's because I have Summer Cabin Fever.
