Lazy Days of Summer

I woke today to the regime of homeschooling and chores, most days of which I'm most thankful for. And, don't get me wrong, I'm still thankful for homeschooling. Still thankful for a home and children to care for. But...

I'm also so ready for the lazy days of summer.

Relaxing a little longer in the morning.
Serving up homemade popsicles to cool the kids off in the afternoon.
Summer salads at night because it's too hot to heat the house with the stove.
Ice tea.
Ice Cream.

Ice cold air conditioning that hits your face as you come inside from the scorching summer sun.

But most of all, I just want to be still.
During our homeschool days there is very little being-still.
I long today to just be still.
