Monday Mornings

I have never been a fan of Mondays.  During the school year, they usually hit me pretty hard.  Getting up at 5:30 am...wrestling with my stinkers to get them out of bed...driving to work with a list of things to accomplish running through my head...sleepy first graders that need one more day to rest (which usually means needing a little extra TLC from me *the best part of my Mondays*)...homework packets for Max...well, you get the idea.
But in the summer, things are much different.  I get up and ENJOY a cup of coffee on the back porch before my kiddos get up.  I check my email and read my favorite the quiet!  Then I hear the pitter patter of little feet and see crazy bed-hair and sweet smiles. 
Chit Chat
Show and Tell
I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved these mornings. 
It makes my heart sing.
Hope you have enjoyed your Monday morning!


  1. I'm so glad you teachers get a break - 5:30 is a killer! My Mom's been doing it for 29 years!!! Hope summer is going well for y'all - it looks like it is!

  2. Oh, and I hope your foot is healing!!!!

  3. I wish I could be up before my little stinkers but Charlie is an EARLY riser, in the summer I just tuck him back in bed with me and fall asleep, this morning it was to the sound of rain. it's killing me that June is over!!!! I want the summer to SLOW down. I love crazy bed hair too!! On my children that is, not such a fan of my own. :) Hope your foot is feeling better. xo, Tessa

  4. My Monday morning was a beautiful sunny one shared with my baby boy, my Tuesday morning however is overcast :( I love your pics, and your 2 older kiddies look just like their lovely mummy...enjoy your mornings, your coffee and your children!

  5. This is such a sweet, sweet post! I'd love to meet your little munchkins!

    Be sure to stop by tomorrow and check out my giveaway!

  6. Hey friend - oh how I would love to enjoy coffee in the mornings on my back porch...or visit with you and have a cup of coffee. Enjoy one for me today. Sweet sweet pictures of those kiddos - I love them so!

  7. Sounds like a nice morning...enjoying your coffee and having time to yourself before the day begins. I love sitting out on our deck, all by myself, and having a moment.

    I just read the post about your foot! You poor thing, it looks horrible. Take care of it.

  8. What a sweet post.
    Even first thing in the morning your kids are adorable!
