Each and every day of May is precious to me. The school year is winding down and only a few short weeks until the glory and busyness of summer vacation. Until I was a parent, I never understood that the ‘lazy days of summer’ don’t actually apply to you.
We have some fun family plans to look forward to, so I’m excited and apprehensive all at once for June to start. Each year, I try to plan less and allow for more free time — more time for serendipity and long play dates. More time for museums and reading in the library. More time for travel and seeing family. More time for sitting on the deck eating popsicles and for climbing trees. More time to have friends over. It requires more of my time and attention, but it’s worth it in the long run. These childhood summers go by so quickly. And so for now, I relish the moments of May that still belong to me.
