once upon a summertime

we've had a busy-ish summer so far. sweet m. is taking ballet and doing t-ball, we've done a quick road trip, and park day is every tuesday. what's busy to us is probably pretty mellow for most people. that's okay.
my favorite summer days are ones like today. nowhere to go, no big plans, pj's stay on longer than they should, some chores get done and some might not. that's okay.
i'm trying to live by my motto, some lines from leonard cohen's song "anthem." (that i've probably quoted here before, but that's okay too.)

ring the bells that still can ring
forget your perfect offering
there is a crack in everything
that's how the light gets in.

Your kids are ADORABLE!! And you know why? Because they have an adorable mommy! I too am soaking in the lazy summer. (Maybe a little too much, but hey, it's good for now!)
