A Summer Like No Other
Summer is my favorite rhythm for our family. I love the casual flow of schedules and lesser activities. I like extended time together at the beach, the pool and even to the mountains. Bedtimes are relaxed and mornings are unrushed. It's nice.
We had a week of togetherness at the beach which was fantastic. We had a visit from my parents that I'm still treasuring. We had a great summer. It was just a bit different, and indicative of the stage of parenting where we are.
I notice the flowers are completing their annual cycle. The evening sun sets a bit earlier. The leaves on the patio that drop are dry and brown, some in the trees already have hints of color. Fall won't arrive for a while, but the shift has come. The rush is real.
How was your summer? Do you look forward to the routines of fall? Is there a shift for your family?
