I can feel it coming. It’s in the 80’s this week. Positively summer weather for the Pacific Northwest. Which means I need to start making my Summer Family Activities list. Every May I get a teeny bit freaked out about the fact that June is right around the corner and that means four children will
possibly probably be looking to me as their cruise director for the next few months. Well, I realized the other day that I only have a few more of these summers with all of them. Before she learns to drive. Before the boys are off at baseball camps and practices and clinics and with friends, etc. It might mean schlepping them all to the grocery store before we head to the beach, or whatever. But I know the day is coming too quickly when I will think to myself, “remember when they were ALL home ALL the time?”
So, as I stare at the increasingly full calendar and think about how we are going to fill our days, I’m going to just leave as much as I can blank. To fly kites in the front yard. To have a picnic dinner. To blow dandelions and bubbles. May your early summer days be full of shirtless little kids, barefeet, backyard pools, tire swings, crazy hair and gorgeous gorgeous light. What fabulous things are on your summer bucket list?
Oh, and if you want to freeze time just a bit give me a call, because that’s what I do. Let’s play in the sun, run at the beach, make pancakes in your kitchen and eat them on a blanket in the yard. Or maybe there’s a favorite coffee shop you like to walk to as a family. Let me document your family life because THIS MOMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME. Trust me, you’ll want to remember all the little details. Not to mention you’ll get a jump on your Christmas card picture before the rush.
