Even though the last day of school was weeks ago it took me a bit to settle into summer. School may have stopped, but life didn’t. I was finishing up a training program and Sky was in full on dance practice getting ready for a public performance and a recital.
And, it took me a week or two to get back into the full time stay at home mom gig. Even though I work outside the home (during the school year) I still feel like a SAHM, so I was surprised to find myself a little adrift at how to settle back into life with Sky, just the two of us all day, every day. I still feel a little afloat, but we are having fun and managing to get everything done that needs doing.
When it’s sunny we are taking our workouts and summer school work outside, hitting the park and spray parks as often as we can, scheduling play dates, and getting in a ton of cuddle time. She still thrives on cuddle time with lot’s of silly conversation and tickles mixed in.
One thing I had no trouble getting back into….long slow lazy starts to the morning. It does take us a very long time to get up and going and out the door. We just enjoy taking our time in the morning, and I’m ok with that. Soon enough it will be back to work/school and back to rushing out the door, so for now we are slowing things down and enjoying the sun, and doing what we want.
It’s almost time for 4th of July and we have a busy week of vineyard work, visiting with family, and a family reunion that has been in the works since December last year! So excited for all the festivities and family time this week!
Happy Summer, and Happy 4th!
