Our summer days have gotten into their own little rhythm. We have all been slow to rise and then our morning just goes without much of a plan. Games, reading, lots of time to play and use their imagination. Some mornings there have been comments such as "I'm bored". Well, go find something to do among our many activities we have in this house or its O.K. to be bored.
We go to the pool most afternoons. The other day the boys were excited to see a friend of theirs, however he was not able to play. He had a swim lesson , then tennis lesson and then another swim lesson. The boys made a comment on how busy he was. It was a great chance to remind the boys that busy is not always good. That people, children especially, need time to decide for themselves what they would like to do.
I am glad that I have kept our schedule open and free.
