Summer is just always a sweet time for me. Sunshine and blue skies are my favorite, but the more restful and relaxed pace of life is what really fills my heart. We do best with a bit of routine, so there are still bedtimes and chores, but the pace of life in general is much more slow. There aren't looming homework requirements and my commuting time to taxi children back and forth is greatly reduced. The slow life is definitely for me!
