Moments to live to the Hilt-Summer Days

I'm off during the summer, so each day is precious to me. I start to see the days sift through my hands and start thinking, Hey, wait a minute, we need to go swimming one more time or go for story time or make Blondies together or practice our letters. Before I know it, school busses start rolling and children come to school wide-eyed and afraid of sixth grade teachers. My own little one will cry for two weeks each morning as she gets left in a room with Miss. ? as Mommy goes back to school to teach "big kids". So today, while it seems unimportant, I enjoyed cleaning and scrubbing the fridge while the Bird played with babies and flitted in and out of the room. Every now and then she would stop and engage me in a conversation about how her girls (two naked dolls) were getting hair cuts to day and she was going to buy vegetables. We are off to the store now-to buy carrots and yogurt and many other things too. We can go slowly and talk and make a game out of finding things, because it is summer and I have time.

Yes...it really is a gift when you get to just "hang out" with the kiddos--not rushing out of PJs or out the door. Thanks for sharing your ordinary moments worth savoring!

Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed reading some of your blog. I stay at home now, but taught for many years...can relate to enjoying the slow pace of summer.
