Summer with 3 boys is a bit intimidating.
I feel like we have to be busy and expending energy and loving every minute of it. Because, let's face it, childhood summers are the best. And there are only so many of them.
And I sort of think summers with boys should be all about spending the afternoons on a lake hanging from a rope swing. I know that's idealistic, but ever since having boys there's a part of me that wished we lived out in the country with a lake in our backyard. But we don't. And we won't be moving anytime soon.
So....instead of rope swings and explorations in the country, we've just been spending a lot of time outside....on bikes, at the t-ball field, digging in the dirt and so forth. And, even though I know they're missing out on the rope swing, they don't :-).
