I feel refreshed and renewed as a mother...grateful for these 10 weeks of summer vacation to get back to what life is really about...family.
John and I have had time to spend together watching movies and The Graham Norton Show (boy we both LOVE that show and have such a good laugh together watching it!) and generally just more time to have conversation that doesn't feel rushed or urgent.
Life is slower, mornings start later (we sleep in till almost 10:00 daily). Lunches are later, dinner too. The days feel so much longer than during the school year. Does time really move slower in summer? Or is it just I feel more present, engaged in each moment. It doesn't matter the reason, I just count my blessings and am thankful for every luscious moment of this glorious summer.
