This time of year is always exciting and stressful~ all the school projects to wrap up, concerts and activities to go to, and all the while, the feeling of summer is driving the undercurrent of the day. It is not the time of year that children (and their parents, or this one anyway) feel like putting their thinking caps on and doing studious things. “Summer Vacation” looms in all our minds and concentration is a lost art.
At least that’s what I’m trying to tell myself due to the fact that my brain is on Scatter Mode. There are at least 101 things I should be doing, 115 things I actually am doing and another 2,000 that somehow aren’t even on my radar.
It’s times like these that I like to stop and smell the roses. Or in reality, for me, that means to stop and engage in my life. This morning, it meant to not just absentmindedly shuffle through the huge stack of school papers that I forgot to go through on Friday, but to really SEE the beauty there…
Indigo’s regretting that he didn’t put the pants on the back…but I think these highwaters are brilliant. Lessons learned~ next time, I think he’ll glue the pants on the back.
And I love this, even though Indie doesn’t think it looks like him at ALL~
I love what it says: I like me.
Another sweet moment this morning, getting all sunscreened up for Track & Field Day at school…
Today I’m not going to think of the piles of things I have to get done…I will do one thing at a time and try to enjoy the process versus just crossing it off my list. That’s the goal. I’ll let you know if it works. XO
