Enjoying the summer…this is what summer is about!
In 10 years this i the first summer that I’ve taken off school. I’ve cut back on workshops and time at school to spend time with my kids, husband, and family. It’s been the best thing for me. I have to admit, I was starting to lose my sanity about December of last year and I wasn’t sue how I would make it to June. Well, obviously I did and I’m lapping up these fine days. I’ve been fortunate enough to attend a fabulous conference this summer, read a few books, and think about what I want to do differently this fall.
As a parent, I’ve really been thinking of what I can do to give my kids stability and nurturing. I hope I’m doing enough. I’ll admit, juggling a 50+ hour work week, 2 kids, 2 horses, etc…is crazy and during the school year they really do get short changed. That needs to change starting with this summer. We’ve had a great one so far — so many great memories!
