The words I write this week are more for myself than for anyone else. I have this need to fill every moment of our summer with activities! We must take the kids to the ballpark, swimming, camping, to the lake, to a parade, out late to watch fireworks. If I do not check each of these items off of the summer “to-do” list I have failed as a parent!!
This usually means we run from one activity to another – never stopping to rest, allowing time for reflection, or letting the simple enjoyment of each others’ company be acceptable summer fun!
