Unpopular opinion, but summer in our house is not for brushing up on our math skills or mandatory summer reading or organizing the garage. Summer is for sleeping in, snacks for breakfast lunch AND dinner, and just generally recharging for the upcoming school year that comes all too quickly. This summer, find me saying yes to sleepovers and letting the kids get too tired and giving them pizza money and generally cherishing these moments - because they are 16 and 14 now, and summer fun is rapidly turning into summer jobs. The days are long, but good grief do the years fly by. I’m spending this summer appreciating this one.
Cheers to summer!
