Our 4th of July weekend couldn't have been any more perfect.
And we didn't do one single thing. A weekend on the calendar with nothing but blank space is a treasure, especially after a long baseball season that has filled up every weekend since about March.
It left time for diving board jumping. I sat on the chair and watched the boys laugh and giggle as they jumped. These days are so sweet and I love it when I can slow down enough to enjoy it.
We walked down a couple of blocks to our neighborhood's parade. It was perfect and small and they threw some candy out so the kids were happy.
The boys took turns mowing the lawn. We did nothing Friday, except grill some hamburgers, make homemade ice cream and hop in the car when it got late and saw some fireworks from the highway. It gave me time to organize the pantry and take care of all the piles in the house that have accumulated over the last months.
Chris took the boys ALL day on Saturday to do various errands (museum and horse races… basically, he's super dad!) so I could get some things done around the house. I purged the school room and did some home school planning.
We had a lazy Sunday morning too. We had french toast, Nutella, whipped cream and strawberries before we hopped in the car for church.
A weekend full of blank space. It was lovely in every way.
