It’s been a long week. Month. Spring. Between little league (three boys, three different leagues, three different locations), Pre-K graduation, 4th grade moving-up ceremony, year end picnics, two fundraisers for ATD, one kitchen remodel, and a couple of family health scares… mama is tired.
Sully is off to kindergarten!
Yankees win the AAA championship in a nail-biting scorcher!

However, here we go, jumping into the summer routine. It is supposed to mean less scheduling, more “free” time. Less hustle, more deep breathing. Less crankiness, more rejuvenation. At least we all aim for that each summer season, right? I am seriously going to try to be more chill this summer. But why is this such a challenge?!? What can we do to achieve this, for ourselves and for our kids?
My simplest answer is… BE PRESENT. It’s all too easy to be distracted with work, email, phones, housework, to-do lists, all of it. I really want to take more time for myself, for my kids, for making meals, for laughing, for catching up with friends and family, for exercise, for date nights. I want to try harder at this. Are you with me???
Download my Summer Goals 2017 worksheet (just drag it to your desktop!) We are in this together. This is the good stuff. So, what else do you want to add to keep us focused on health and happiness? Please share your ideas with me. Mama needs you 😉
Take care of yourselves and enjoy the summer!
