Breakin' The Rules

Summer came late in Southern California.
Our crazy heat usually hits mid July and August is a killer.
But we sailed through, all the while I knew the wrath was lurking!
Finally, just as August faded into September, the angry heat showed up.
It called for an impromptu night swim!
We called the neighbors and asked if they wanted to head over for a night swim.
I even got in on the action - that's how hot it was at 8pm!
This Moma got thrown in with her clothes on and she didn't mind one bit!

And we got to turn on the new pool lights, so that was cool!
No one was in bed by 7:30 and you know what?
it was perfectly fine to break the rules!
Sometimes it's easy to get stuck in a routine for the sake of routine and nothing else!
My Daddy always says, "the only difference between a rut and a grave is a lid!"
So, sometimes you've got to get out of the rut, or routine and
break the bed time rules to make some magical memories!
Do you need to break some rules today?
(I'm not talking about breaking laws, like speeding,
or texting while driving or putting that lip gloss at Target in your pocket!)
As Fall settles in and we head back to our coveted routines,
 let's hold them loosely and allow God to guide our days and surprise us
 with some magical memories that just might come when we break our own rules!

  1. LOVE this post! I am a schedule Nazi!! So for the 4th of July, we went to do fireworks and the kids were up until 11pm... OMgosh... they are NEVER up that late! Honestly, they had never watched fireworks because I was such a stickler for "routine" but this year I through caution to the wind and the kids LOVED EVERY MINUTE! Those are memories that will be treasured forever... sometimes you just have to let go and have fun!
