Summer is in full swing!
Now is the time to soak in the joy of no homework or school projects. No deadlines or parent-teacher conferences.
Take the opportunity to clean out closets and toys. Start with something small like a drawer or a shelf. You'd be amazed how fun cleaning can be when you blast fun music and relax a little. And what an awesome project to do with your kids. While cleaning, reminisce about all the fun times you had with a particular toy or a funny story about an experience with a certain outfit. Use this time to let your children know the importance of giving to those less fortunate than us. You can even turn it into a friendly competition: whoever has the biggest giveaway pile wins something fun.
Enjoy the slower days of summer because before you know it, we will be back in the grind of alarm clocks and PTA meetings.
Until then, soak up the sun and be present in the days you'll be day- dreaming about soon!
