In former summer stages of life I always felt like I knew exactly what to do because seizing the day was the theme of those months. Several times I’ve walked by the rectangle kiddie pools in Aldi, wondering if I should’t just go ahead and buy one. That way on weeks like this week when we’ve got three or four different groups on the camp grounds, we can skip the lake and enjoy instead the space of our own personal pool.
I’m not sure what to do when I’m not busy seizing the day and trying to make the summer the absolute best it can be. The kids don’t need as much attention and supervision, so we don’t do as many things together anymore. We had a good chunk of school time this morning and I was happy about that and feel like slowly and steadily the younger boys are making progress with the reading. School in summer isn’t so bad.
