As a mother, I find that it is so easy to get caught up in everyday life. Sometimes I feel like I am always rushing from one thing to another, so this summer I made it a goal to slow down and really enjoy everyday with my kids. I am very fortunate that I am able to stay home and take care of my four children, but some days are definitely more chaotic than others. My goal for myself is to try to really just enjoy the simplicity of childhood. It is easy to get caught up in scheduling sports, play dates, birthday parties, dance classes, etc. While all of those things are fun and great for the kids, sometimes I find that the best times my children have are when we are just having fun playing outside, swimming, exploring, catching lightening bugs, making s’mores, or watching a movie together. This summer we have really slowed down and enjoyed the simple things. It has reminded me of my summers as a kid and has really been wonderful.
Enjoy the last month of summer!!
