It was a gorgeous day and the temperatures were only getting warmer so we finally pulled out the pool. It needs some TLC but we got it up and running and the kids were thrilled!
We called Grampa Hope at lunch time and sang Happy Birthday to him which I'm sure was THE highlight of his day!!
During one of the breaks at the pool the kids and I discussed plans for our upcoming homeschool year and the changes we might implement. The kids seem keen and I'm getting back into that organizing and planning lessons kind of mind frame.
It was lovely to sit on the deck and slowly sip my coffee and munch on some bread with hagleslag as the kids splashed and played.
For supper Marko barbecued the most delicious steaks ever! That with some salad and grilled flat bread we were all very thankful for a delicious meal. Marko and I went out for dessert while the kids had some down time and watched a show. Nothing like a hot fudge sundae to top off a delightful day at home.
And just to keep it real--while all of these lovely things did happen--there were also those melt down moments and the rest of the crazy that comes with every family.
Gotta love flipping your water soaked hair!
