Country Living

Still every day life getting in the way of grown up playtime. I can't complain though, the kids are happy and enjoying summer. I just can't believe how busy I've been this week. I've been swamped. I'm definitely not a fan of summer heat, but I do like the kids to be able to run around and play outside. I was planning on enrolling our older child in some day camps this year, but he's been keeping pretty busy on the property with his friend from down the street. I'd rather he jump in and out our ponds and run around our acreage than drive him all the way to town every day to play with a bunch of kids he doesn't know. The beauty in which we live is a wonderful playground and he's at the perfect age to run wild in it. Of course, actually allowing him the freedom to run freely without my supervision (read: overprotection) is a monumental act of self control on my part. I'm learning to give him some room to grow, though. It's funny, though. All the things I find so beautiful and refreshing he wants to tear apart, shoot, or crunch under foot!

Ha! My neighbor just drove by on his tractor and waved. Man, I love living out in the country. :-)

I can't wait until mine are old enough for that! Even with as much acreage as we have, we still maintain a strict "Stay Inside The Fence!" rule. *sigh* Someday!

I am so jealous of where you live! I grew up in a semi-rural area, and still miss it!
