As much as we try to plan out tons of fun things to do every Summer, I’ve found the joy really does come in the small things and for me that’s literally doing nothing. It’s having moments of nothing to do, nothing but the sounds of nature and children playing. Having no where to be…and nothing to do. The school year is such a stress because everything HAS to be scheduled. When we get up, going to school, picking up from school, homework…and on and on. Even weekends are spent playing catchup. So when Autumn asked today “is it Sunday?” (It’s Tuesday) I knew we were doing something right. For you kiddos getting to stay up late just so we can spend more Summer together is magical. In the morning when you all get up at the same time you do everyday, well I’m sure I will not feel the same way…but right now with you all tucked snugly in bed I’m as happy as I ever could be. Sleep well my loves.
