I’ve been looking forward to summer for quite some time. It’s the time when all things slow waaaaaaaaaaaay down. Um yeah… about that.

7:30 to 8:00 Baths and bed
8:00 to 8:43 Write
I remember when I was a kid we’d spend all hours during the summer at the pool, playing in the yard, riding our bikes and catching lightening bugs. There were no camps, no activities, no eating Chick Fil A in the car.
I feel fortunate that my kids have such wonderful opportunities, but I miss the simpler times of summer.
What are you doing to relax this summer?
Are you or your kids involved in activities?
