we've slipped into a nice little routine this summer, one that seems to be working out well for us. we usually head out to the pool right after lunch (or some other sort of activity) just to get the kids out of the house. it's a little tricky right now because Camila naps twice a day.. so our schedule is kind of centered around it. not sure if this is a good thing or not but it seems to work for now.
once we get back into the house Camila will go straight down for a nap. Isabella may or may not nap - just depends on how tired she is. and then the house becomes quiet. it' is one of my favorite times of the day.. where I can decompress and just catch up on things I need to get done. or choose not to do anything at all.
either way, it's a much needed little break in the midst of a busy day.
hope you are having a wonderful summer so far :)
