The month of June has brought out the heat in South Carolina. Hot days, hot temps, simply hot, hot, hot. Not that the kids seem to mind. They are enjoying days filled with water sprinkler fun, swimming in the river, playing outdoors games like kickball, baseball and bike riding. Their only dislike is how hot it already is outside.
Emmalee’s puppy is growing like crazy. He’s already two inches taller than Claire, our Cocker Spaniel. He’s annoyingly loving and lots of fun.
The kids have been getting a lot of hands on nature study with the extra outdoor time. We’ve been watching areas we’re hanging out in for Poison Ivy and Poison Oak and finding it sometimes, thankfully avoiding it. We’ve seen new babies flying, swimming, crawling everywhere. Caught minnows and tadpoles in the river and pond. Even helped clean out the overgrowth surrounding our pond so that we can enjoy time fishing and playing on the banks.
I haven’t been able to go to bed early and sleep through the night because of the puppy’s needs. This is also reflecting on getting up early which I haven’t been able to manage due to not being able to o to sleep early. I have been reading my devotional book daily and reflecting on the things I have read. This is such a blessing since I can’t seem to get much else done while chasing a toddler and a puppy during the day.
I’m hoping to be able to get back to work on my list soon, working on my goals. I have several ideas for new blog posts that I’m hoping to be able to get into writing. We have new curriculum to start working on and the kids are super excited. We have plans for swimming, boating, fishing throughout our summer. July we are heading to Georgia to visit family. It’s going to be a busy month but we are more than ready.
Bring on Summertime in June.
