I have decided to join some other bloggers in a Challenge to Write. Each day all the participants write on an assigned topic. During this process, you should learn a little more about me, but more importantly I hope to learn more about you! So, please leave me your own thoughts on each day’s topic in the comments. I will try to tailor upcoming articles to your interests and experiences.
What is your favorite thing about summer?
Although some parents dread having to keep their kids entertained all day every day for three months, I look forward to school letting out for the summer because it frees me from our typically rigid schedule of school, after-school, and religious education activities that define our school year.
I love letting the kids sleep in and taking time to make the occasional big breakfast for everyone. I love that I don’t have tears at bedtime because I can let them stay up until the sun goes down. And I love getting to see all of my children playing together, eating together, talking to one another for most of the day rather than at a rushed dinner. Friends and family, do not ruin this daydream for me by imposing facts that refute this vision. I’m sure all of those things have occurred at least once during the summer.
In a nutshell, my favorite thing about summer is more time with my family. Of course, talk to me in late August and my answer might be different. What is YOUR favorite thing about summer? Am I missing out on something fun? If so, clue me in because I like fun and so do my readers. (If you are reading this and you don’t like to have fun you must have gotten here by mistake—leave quietly and no one has to know.)
