31 Days of Smart Summer Fun, Day 1: Inspired by Summer

Have you set any goals for your family this summer? The freedom of summer, the nothing-else-to-do nature of summer makes a difference, we’ve found. In summer we step away from daily routines and have a chance to imagine ourselves a bit differently. Escaping however briefly from certain constraints, we have time to take on challenges that we might otherwise avoid, or simply fail to envision.

For our kids, it might be learning how to skip or kick a ball into the soccer goal (away from the prying eyes of gym class.); for us, it might be learning to take better everyday photos of our children, capturing the small moments instead of just the big ones. Maybe it’s just slowing down, remembering how to watch the skies for birds and the bushes for butterflies, remembering to walk right up to the edge of the puddle, instead of skirting quickly around it.

Summer brings a different kind of learning into our lives, and we’ve decided to embrace it. This is our goal for the first day of July:  Slow down a bit today and watch for the wonder in the everyday moments. Celebrate the small victories (because to our children, they really are big), and cheer on the new challenges.
