Boy oh boy, is it hot here! We've been having well over 100 degree days and when you add in the humidity factor to that....it is HOT!
So...we've been doing some of this:
Jie Jie gets lots of kisses from Luke throughout the day...
But he's not always 100% happy with her.....and this is what his mad face looks like when he's not:
Honestly though, it really is almost too hot to swim even. The pool feels like bath water!
Joy and Luke have also been doing a little of this:
But actually they didn't even last very long doing that because of the heat!
Some days we spend time with friends....that's Molly Grace there...:
Most days, Grandmama and Pop drop by or else the kids walk next door and visit with them:
Sometimes I even get to do this:
That's the extent of my naps though...nodding off for about 10 minutes when I'm rocking Luke to sleep. (Miss Joy captured that pic saying it was sweet....honestly I don't think I look that sweet). :)
Then it's (hopefully) about 2 hours of time for either Joy and I to do something together or to just catch up on "stuff".
This part of the day......late evening (after supper)....we look forward to our leisurely 4-wheeler ride: Jason and I on the 4-wheeler and Joy and Luke in the wagon behind. Late evening is the only time it's cool enough for this though. We take our time enjoying the scenery riding through the farm fields and gravel roads.
At the end of these hot summer days (if the mosquitos aren't too bad), we might be found outside playing around the yard and watering bushes and flowers.
Can you tell what these two were sitting there doing?
.....Watching the cars go by (Luke LOVES to do that) and simply enjoying a homemade lemonade popsicle together (Joy LOVES her lemonade). Gotta love those tupperware popsicle makers!
Then it's bath time and time to call it a day....so we can get up and begin another (hot) summer day.
Enjoy the rest of your summer! (But fall can come anytime and it would be perfectly fine with me)!!! :)
