Summer break has recently just begun for my kids. Some moms dread summer break. But, for me, I look forward to it just as much as the kids do-maybe even more! I love to have the extra time with them (and I really love sleeping in-even if they don’t! ha)
As I sat down to write today, my calendar tells me it’s already June 13th. I know it’s just begun, but I feel like Summer is tapering down already!
It’s easy to get used to the “freedom” that comes with Summer Break. But, I want to stay focused on what my goal for the summer was: to spend quality time with my kids.
Sadly, I feel like I’ve lost site of this. I‘ve used this free time so far to catch up around the house and do projects I have been putting off. Things on MY AGENDA-not the kids’.
Don’t get me wrong, we’ve done fun “summer” things: the beach, hiking, geocaching etc. But, I want to be more involved with this time where I have their attention.
We purposely don’t do sports or camps or anything too scheduled during the summer. We don’t want the distractions like we have all school year. We want the freedom to do as we choose and to just embrace being together.
So, today, I’m going to cut it short and go embrace this time with my kiddos.
I hope this has been good reminder to you to stay focused this summer and prioritize time with your family while they don’t have the distractions of homework etc.
Make today count!
