Too Hot, too soon

We survived Saturday at the soccer fields, although it was touch and go there for awhile. Even the kids who seem to have excess energy in all types of weather seemed a little slower. Soccer is now over for the season. We have our evenings & Saturdays back until August.

By the time we were finished, I was toast and the younger ones needed their naps. Mary, on the other hand was invited out to one of her teammate's stables to see part of a horse show and ride a horse. DH took her to that, so I could come home and rest.

Apparently they got the big tour of the whole stable, barn, riding ring, etc. She got to ride a horse, help brush one and watch as someone cleaned out the hooves. Before she left they gave her a 'real' used horseshoe. This little side trip totally made Mary's day.

Sunday, we went over to a friend's house and went swimming with them. Their pool was the perfect size to be able to swim/play with Emily and Robbie while also keeping an eye on Mary and Katie. It felt so good to be in the water, even at 10:30 in the morning it was already sultry outside. I brought Robbie and Emily home after lunch so they could rest. DH was home so I went back to my friend's place and spent the entire afternoon chilling, relaxing and visiting. What a vacation for me.

Public schools still have two more days, so two more quiet days around the house. We are going to try to relax, play some games and enjoy our time together. In between I'll do my best to tackle the mountain of laundry from this weekend.
