We've got a sugar situation!


Lemonade

So, I love summer. I would vehemently lobby against year round school, because I believe whole-heartedly in summer vacation.Bare feet, popsicles, sprinklers, sleeping in, s'mores, camping, boating, reading good books outside, dinner at 9 pm, children who never change out of their swimming suits and lemonade. Lemonade, however, is the cause of the one thorn in my side this summer. Trent bought about 107 lemonade flavored kool-aid packets and has one of the kids make it each evening when he gets home so he can have a nice tall glass of lemonade. Sounds refreshing I know. But, before I go, on I must digress for a moment. You may notice that in my list of favorite things about summer, being bare foot was #1. I never wear shoes if I don't have to. This tradition starts in April and will hopefully end around Halloween. I LOVE walking around bare foot! Hence, my problem - the lemonade. My kids make the lemonade and inevitably spill about a cup of sugar on the floor EVERYTIME! And then my bare feet walk through it. UGH! I hate that! I don't know how they do it, but they do it everytime. And I clean it up. Yes, I , clean it up, because if any of you have children, you know the job they will do sweeping. They can sweep to their little hearts content and miss every grain of sugar. So I clean it, so I can walk blissfully around, bare foot.
This is the end of this blog as the the kids just made some lemonade!
