Summertime

It may not be much, but it’s ours.

What’s ours? Our summer. For maybe the first time since about forever, life has actually slowed down since the beginning of May.

Our May got easier to handle because we axed softball from the schedule. Best. Move. Ever.

Our June has been low-key because I just said NO to all the programs designed by well-meaning organizations and churches to give parents a “break.” No day camps, no VBS, no nothing.

The girls will get their camp experience next month when we combine our family vacation into a combo vacation/camp two-for-one punch. But what that means for us right now is that we’ve had the month of June to just be.

And that’s exactly what we’ve been doing.

It’s summertime…and the living is easy. For now. We’ll take it.

    What a wonderful idea. Summer is meant to be filled with time to run through the water, read books for fun, sleep on the porch, make mud pies with you siblings, and be creative. Only time with nothing to do leads to that.
