Summer has officially started in every way – the calender says so, it’s 95F outside and the kids are off from school. The adjustment for me has to do with figuring out a new routine that is a break for the kids from their structured school lives, but not too chaotic for me. I want to enjoy this time with the kids and use it to strengthen family bonds.  As a wise woman has said to me before, “Relax!”; that is what I will try to do.

How about you?  How do you adjust to the new tempo of summer?

    Not yet for us. Two more weeks of school ahead. Right after that we are of to germany and wherever the sun will bring us..( we will go werever it is nice and sunny) that brings us in the slow down mood immediately. After that we will easily stay that way. It is harder to adjust to school times after holiday then the other way around.
