Thankfully, our summer sitter has learned our weird ways and we are all enjoying lingering evenings and later mornings. We've accomplished a few hikes, installed a garden, visited with both sets of grandparents, frequented the pool and the park, watched lots of movies and are filling out our summer reading lists. It's a nice pace for me. I know when the time comes, I will appreciate the routine of school, but I'm loving this summer rhythm. It is a more relaxed pace than I have enjoyed recently.
