Out of our rut

Everyone is feeling a little anxious around our house these days. I’m anxious that summer is almost gone and we haven’t done near the things we wanted to do and why is the weather chilly we need to be OUTSIDE ENJOYING EVERY MOMENT OF THE SUNSHINE! Summers in Minnesota can be stressful because you know they’re short, so you want to enjoy every beautiful moment. Sometimes I may go a little overboard.

The girls are stressed about kindergarten. And shoes that fit. And school supplies. And leaving their teachers. The weekend was a lot of fighting and yelling and sassing. I tried shooing them outside, but they wanted nothing to do with their playset or the outdoors.


Sunday evening I went outside to attempt to weed the garden. First Caden came out to help, then Delaney. We ate a quick dinner, and then they both disappeared outside again. Suddenly, the playset was fun! And the slide they said was Boring, was part of their imaginary game of ninja.

It was good for everyone to get out of the house and breathe in some fresh air, and good to get out of our anxiety rut.
