Slow Summer Series

(a special moment sharing stories)
So in order to keep me focused on maintaining a slow summer for our family and just for the fun of it, I am going to challenge you all to join me in my #slowsummerseries.  Whenever you catch your family truly relishing the summer moments without rush, please join me by linking up your blog post or Flickr photos or use hashtag #slowsummerseries on Instagram or Facebook to inspire others to do the same.  I will post a new Slow Summer post each week for you to link up to and before the next week’s post, I will choose a WINNER to receive a free e-book of their choice from Little Acorn Learning (there is a voting option through this link-up).  This will be our first post to link to.

This delicious Roasted Corn, Bean and Mango salad kept my girls and I busy for a good part of the afternoon yesterday.  It was just at a time when they were feeling extremely bored and I was beginning to feel guilty for not taking them out of the house that day.  So, I had them help me cook and they had so much fun and ate every last bit I gave them.

  1. I, too feel the lack of "slow and easy" in our summer. This is the time of year that my massage business kicks into high gear, and that allows us to have a slower rest of the year. Relatively.

    As my 13 year old daughter gets older, we find her interests more varied, and we are on that merry-go-round we swore we'd never be on…the activity every night!

    This summer she qualified to go to the National competition of Quiz in Pony Club. I have to work, so Dad is making the trip to Kentucky with her next week.

    We have made the decision to slow down a little this fall, and not sign her up for the Friday, all day, wilderness program. She will do the spring session.

    Planning on an August with more time to relax. Hoping we can actually pull it off!

    I certainly can see the difference between my childhood of the 60's and the childhood of today. Even in the 80's-90's, when my son was young, it seems much more demanding.
