I am in my room sipping coffee as I hear a table of kids talking while eating the hundreds of pancakes I made for them. Friends slept over last night and the cousins have arrived for a 10:00 piano lesson for my two middle girls and the cousin. The piano teacher will arrive soon and I will assume my job of keeping the youngest happy in the backyard while lessons take place.
All sleepovers require chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast in our house. All the girls' friends have come to expect them. I have to hide my chocolate chips in this house as they seem to disappear if I don't.
Remember my tip: Put a plate under your batter bowl to catch the drips and then just put in the dishwasher with your breakfast dishes.
Onto my chores and I needed to get some dusting done on our built in bookshelves. There's my sexy hubby there when he first became a lineman. Yes, he has a picture of himself that he framed in our hallway. He put it with his insulator collection. I am crushing on him right now as he is gone this week working out of town and you know how absence makes the heart grow fonder.
The morning light catches all the colors of the insulators. So pretty for such a practical item.
I love summer and dirty little faces. I always said you could judge how hard your kids played by the dirt on their faces. Then off to a bath to get scrubbed clean. I miss my other kids being this young when some water from the hose and sand box were all they needed.
