We (I) had sort of run out of summer steam by August and my lack of Mommy mojo coupled with the crippling heat of our glorious Texas summers meant that (with a few fun exceptions sprinkled in of course!) we were L-A-Z-Y.
The boys watched eight million shows and I pretty much perfected living in my PJs while letting go of the dream that this was going to be the summer my boys learned to love reading and this was going to be the summer where my consistent discipline methods and creative but effective punishments had us dishing out encouragement to one another instead of "Did you just spit on your brothers back?" It wasn't pretty!
Although now that we are back to our school routine and I have packed THREE whole days worth of lunches those lazy days don't sound too bad! What can I say we're (I'm) hard to please.
Here are a few pictures of our last few days of Summer 2013.
Leftover experiment from materials I purchased back in June when I was rocking this summer thang. ;)
Cornstarch quick sand.
I do hope they will wear clothes again someday? Wasn't worth the battle...especially in August.
