My Brain on Summer

Don’t get me wrong, I love summer break. I love not having to race to get the kids to school on time.  I love the absence of homework, and the return of lax bedtimes.  I love not having to worry about packing lunches or making sure the uniform pants are clean.

But as is the case when I’m taken away from my routine, I tend to develop soup for brains, which puts me in a situation like this at 5:45 on a Tuesday night, when EeBee needs to get to karate and the parts of his uniform are scattered all over town.

So if you find that my posts are less wordy for the next few weeks, and maybe don’t make as much sense, you’ll know why.

  • I’m having a difficult time blogging when the weather is so nice outside! There are so many things to do that I might have to take it easy on the blog for a while.

    • Lindy

      I hear you. I’ll be having the same problem once the fall comes. Right now it’s hot, hot, hot and we’re stuck indoors.

  • LOVE the drawing! I forgive any mushy brain-ness so long as it comes with illustrations.

    • Lindy

      Well, thanks!

    “Soup for brains” That’s too cute.I’ll have to remember that.I’ll be the same way at harvest time.

  • hey, that brain soup looks yummy! ;)

  • I’m right there with you! Gosh… getting out of the house before 11:00 is a feat right now. I’m like “SHOOT! It’s lunch time already!!!”

  • I like the diagram! Yeah, summer can change the routine and daily schedule for kids AND parents alike. There are plusses, but there are some adjustments to make too, no doubt about it.

    The soup looks good….I must be hungry:)

  • Well at least if you have soup for brains, it’s a tasty soup like butternut squash! Love the diagram, btw!

  • That’s a great diagram!! Ah, I wouldn’t worry too much about having the uniform scattered across town … sometimes lessons get missed. Sometimes they don’t. It’s all part of the story.

  • We usually have the same situation with our 3 kids having clothes and football and judo gears in 2 countries (they live part time with their Swedish father). It is tough organizing their daily life…

    And I think your soup looks absolutely delicious. I wonder what it is made of? I wouldn’t mind getting the recipe :) .

  • Our house is still trying to settle into our summer routine as well. Summers are always fun and it is great spending those nice summer days outside with the kids but it certainly shakes up the fall routines.

  • Your brains look delicious….

  • My brain feels the same way. Some days it’s just blank.
