Summer is almost here, while it is not June 21, summer vacation has begun for my children. Their last day of school was a few days ago We had a countdown for the last week of school. As the days dwindled down, the excitement was contagious. I could not help myself, but feel equally excited and reminiscent about my own childhood. I began to remember how summer vacation seemed like an eternity and it was filled with the promise of fun things.
In my previous post, I spoke about looking for Joy and I realized I needed to be a active participant in the joy seeking process. Little do my kids know that they gave me a avenue in which to see the joy and excitement of the moment of the last day of school. My oldest daughter even mentioned that she was surprised I was so excited about summer break. And I am.
I hope that a more casual schedule will present opportunities of wonder, inspiration, creativity and most importantly memories to be cherished.
