One more week

Except for a few cool days, we’ve had an amazing spring. The weather has been warm and everything is lush and blooming. The roses in my front gardens are growing without any help from me.

We went on a great family hike on Memorial Day. I don’t think I’ve seen so much foliage and greenery in this high desert since we moved here. The kids had a blast just running down the trails. The highlight for them, though, was throwing rocks into a reservoir. It reminded me of how simple it can be to entertain them.

As I look to the beginning of my summer next week, I hope I keep this in mind. The transition to full-time mom can be hard, but I know that it’s nothing I can’t handle. Hell, “school days” are over – I can have happy hour every day.
