5 Things Friday {6.30.17}

I can’t believe that tomorrow is the first day of July. NO WAY! Slow down summer! I need it to last longer! I’m not ready to do back to the real world with alarm clocks, and schedules, and homework. I’m not ready! I need summer to last at least 4 months. Can we make that happen, people? We should start a petition. I’ll get right on that….as soon as I get back from the pool and finish my margarita. 

1. We’ve had about 12 days straight of rain, rain, rain and thunderstorms. So we didn’t get to go to the pool very much. The kids have made up for it by swimming in the hot tub in between the rain and storms. These two have had the best time together- playing games and pretending to snorkel for plastic fish. I love the relationship they’re developing together as they get older.

2. Well it was bound to happen. Tyler had his first incident in his car. He was coming home from basketball practice and a tire fell off the back of the truck in front of him. He couldn’t stop in time and couldn’t swerve into the other lane because of an oncoming car. So he had to swerve off the side of the road and he hit a recycling bin. The recycling bin did not survive. The car isn’t too badly damaged- a few dents, the headlight cover is cracked, and the fog light is messed up. But it could’ve been worse. And other than being a little shaken up, Tyler is fine. Lessons learned.

3. Zoey got to have a fun playdate with her bestie this week at our local children’s play museum. She loves this place so much. They spent hours pretending to drive race cars, ride whales, shop the supermarket, and make art creations. This place is amazing and they could’ve spent hours longer there if they hadn’t gotten hungry. Ha! I love watching her play with her friends. They’re so cute together.

4. Maia had her consult with the orthodontist this week. She needs a lot of work. She has a crossbite with crowding and it’s going to take some serious work to get her teeth fixed. And to make it more fun- apparently our orthodontic insurance coverage lapsed on 12/31/16 according to the insurance company. But we’re still paying it every month like we have for the last 10 years. Why? Why does this happen to me? I put Matt in charge of figuring that crap out because I have neither the time nor the patience to deal with those idiots. I’m going to be seriously angry if we have to wait a whole year before getting her started with braces. Insert mad face emoji here.

5. The rain finally cleared up mid-week and we were able to hit the pool again. The kids jumped into that water like it had been a year away from it. Ha! They love to swim. I love to lounge pool side in the sunshine and sip a margarita while reading a new book. This is my happy place. Please slow down summer. I love you so much.

    I think we should have a national referendum that all schools from preschool to graduate school start the Tuesday after Labor Day and end the Friday before Memorial Day.
