Most of us moms are well into summer with our kids even though it's just now officially summer today. So far so good in our household. Luckily, my eight-year-old has been enjoying summer school and that keeps him busy for the first half of the day. Then Lu and I pick him up and enjoy each others' company in the afternoon. The first part of the "summer" was spent outdoors at the park and in the back yard just leisurely letting the hours pass. Recently though the heat has kept us indoors and we're desperate for some new things to do. This summer list from last year has inspired me to make our own list. Summer school ends in July and I need to stockpile some activities to keep us sane. At the same time, I have to rein in my mother's guilt and remind myself that there's only so much we can do with a little baby. And it's okay to just doing nothing some days, too. Isn't that what summer's all about? Freedom to enjoy all those little unplanned moments in life. I think so.
How has your summer been so far?
