Summertime Doldrums

Well, it is officially too HOT to do much of anything with my 7 month old during the day. He despises getting hot, so hanging out in the garden or swingset is just out of the question. Since the mosquitos tend to come out in the evening, when it is finally cool enough for him, we have been spending a lot of time in the house, where its air conditioned.

We live far, far away from the nearest town. Seriously, Wal Mart is over an hour away and the nearest park is just as far. We do have a LOT of trees, some frogs and crickets, and plenty of grass and rocks, though! The creek is fairly close, but with six kids and a husband that won't swim, it takes a lot of planning to go. Especially since the youngest two require one on one supervision while swimming.

So, what do you do when you have hit the doldrums? I tend to work more than usual, and spend a lot of time sewing and playing games with everyone. Hopefully this summer heat is just about over, so we can get back to having some outdoor time!
