We did pretty well this summer! I did better getting the Girl Tribe and Family Fun lists done than my own. There are some things we missed that surprise me – we never made ice cream?! That darn ice cream truck never came by our house. Another summer passed without making any tie dye. (We did actually hike, I just missed it when I was crossing things off).
We did a really good job with our daily schedule until our trips started in August, then everything got lost in the shuffle. Same with reading a new book everyday.
Other things, I realized, weren’t that great in the summer. Why go to the museums when it was so pretty outside? Other things were probably never going to happen – a family bath? That was Alma’s brilliant and silly idea.
Looking at the list of things I wanted to do for me, it’s pretty clear I just didn’t take much time for myself during the summer. And that’s okay, because I really did have a great time with my little girl tribe, and Jesse too, when he wasn’t working.
Happy last day of summer!
