Tomorrow is the last day of school. Another summer is almost here. Ashley graduates from elementary school tomorrow, so this is a milestone summer for her. Next stop middle school.
I’ve spent the last couple of months investing a lot of time and energy into putting together our elementary school’s yearbook and working with James on the school’s end of year slideshow. Thousands of photographs. It’s almost done and today, as I finish my role in the slideshow, I found myself thinking about enjoying a simple summer with family and friends. Seeing all the photos of our school community reminds me that we live in a wonderful neighborhood. We are not going to fill up our summer with summer camps or music lessons. We will have lazy days, flexibility, and fun. We will enjoy our neighborhood and our community. And yes, I include myself in that too!
Keep living things alive and happy-feed and water family and plants. Play with husband, children and friends. Read to myself and the children.
Maintain a comfortable home-keep fridge, freezer, food pantry and clothes and linen closets stocked. Pick up books, toys and clothes. Garden.
Play with our photo archive-delete the dross and create memories (frames, albums, slideshows).
Okay, that’s my simple plan. I’m all set. Here comes the summer!!!
