Summer has started..

I let the kids stay up late and have a 'sleepover' in the living room. A couple of them had makeshift beds using the patio chair cushions. Why is it so fun to 'break the rules' and sleep out of your own bed and stay up late when you're a kid?! I only wish the thunderstorm would have allowed them to sleep past 6:30 this morning. By 6:37 a.m. I had two kids pressing into me in my bed. Chip was out of town overnight in Chicago.
It's probably a good thing he was away. We needed the extra space and he didn't have to watch back-to-back episodes of Spongebob Squarepants til 10pm. =)
Happy summer to all of the kiddos out there who officially kicked it off last night too!

my girls LOVE camping out in the living room! i don't ever remember doing that as a kid so i let mine do it quite often - hey if they want to be TOGETHER that's the important thing and as long as some sleeping happens, i don't care where it happens! :) HAPPY SUMMER we have 2 days to finish up and then we are there! :)
