Summer Day :: Overheard

Summer Day :: Overheard

Even though our first week of summer vacation was last week, our first day of anything fun was today. We went to the beach for a few hours this morning. It was warm and gorgeous and fairly quiet.

As I was sitting in the shade with the baby, I watched my children splashing and laughing … and getting along!
And I overheard my 5yo say to my 8yo, as they were running along the sand toward the coolness of the water:
“Who could ask for a better day?”
A smile appeared on my face. And a sense of gratitude for more things than I could count.
And even though I forgot my camera on the kitchen counter, I think that quote sums it up better than any photo possibly could.

  1. I thought for sure you overheard, "I'm bored!" Haha. I haven't heard it yet, but we're not officially on break. Maybe if we never officially go on break, I will never hear it! 😉

  2. My kids (minus baby) are currently running through the sprinkler, splashing in the kiddie pool, enjoying freezie pops…and getting along! There must be something wonderful about summer. (I did insist on some schoolwork this morning though!) 🙂
