Because Jamey is home. This past weekend started his "off" block of rotations. He has five weeks at home. With us. This is one (and possibly the only) benefit to having no job and living off student loans. Well, other than him getting an education, of course.
My Sadie girl
We spent his first day off with family, across state lines at our favorite escape. The weather was warm, but lovely. The thunderstorms that showed themselves on the forecast came no where near us.
Can you tell I wear flip flops all summer?
We swam, visited, went for walks, did a little rock climbing and ate good food. The kids spent the whole day in the water.
My Miriam girl
Miriam met sand for the first time on the man-made beach and did great. Sam learned to swim. It was a great day.
Lunch and dinner: fresh fruit, macaroni salad, chips, PB & J for the kids, hummus, tabouli, and flat bread for the grown-ups and the most amazing peanut butter cookies (not pictured, recipe to follow soon)
Jamey and I have a list to tackle while he's home. We need to fit in our projects amidst a couple planned family vacations. I am thrilled to have some help as we are watching tomatoes ripen and as we await the call to pick up our peaches and nectarines. These five weeks are going to go fast. When they're over much of our food for the year will be put up and we'll be starting school. I'm just hoping the rest of the summer takes it's good old timing in passing.
There is a lot yet to do. Pin It
