A day in Our Life

Gussy Sews is having a link up party today and I thought it would be fun to join.  It is a day in our life.  Now we don’t have a very exciting life or anything, just lots of playing, but I thought I would link up anyway.

I didn’t have a picture of me just waking up, although you have seen me with no makeup before.  One of the first things I do is make breakfast.  If I am being a good girl, I get up early before my boys and do some devotions and read a little, but unfortunately lately the boys are my alarm clock.  Something I really need to work on!

My husband eats 8 to 12 pancakes, 3 eggs with a slice of meat.  And the boys are miniature daddy’s and can pull their weight in the eating department.  Needless to say, if I don’t feed them well in the mornings, it’s gonna be a long day…

After breakfast, we usually go outside and play.  I try to keep my kids outside as much as possible because when we are in France the weather doesn’t stay as beautiful all year round like Southern California.  So Eli likes to mow the lawn…

They like to play in boxes…

They like to play basketball with daddy.

And they definitely like to swim.  Sometimes we swim all day.  Sometimes we’ll be swimming at 8:00 at night.  They are little fish, and I love it.  Here is Tae practicing his umping off the rocks.  He likes to be creative with his karate moves.

Then when we wind down at the end of the day, maybe watch a little Wipeout (Tae loves that show), maybe ride bikes, we go upstairs, take a bath, read a book, maybe sing a song and go to bed.  I try to put my kids to bed a little earlier than most, like 8:00 or 8:30 depending on the night, because ya know, momma needs some time too.  But it’s summer, so I’m not that strict about it. 

And that is it!  I have been loving every minute of summer and doing all kinds of fun stuff to keep the kids {and me} busy and happy!  What does your day look like?

I am linking up with Gussy Sews.

Don’t forget the photo contest tomorrow! I can’t wait to see all your summer photos!!

    What a cute idea for a link up!! I am not that exciting, so I don't know if I would do mine, at least while I am still in the US, but I really like how you did yours. What a perfect day, everyday!
