The Summer Slide

My boys have been out of school for a week and a half, we’ve been spending lots of time at the pool, and my husband and I are finally tackling several long-overdue projects at home. Sounds like we are having a relaxing, go-with-the-flow summer, right?

Well...not really. The hours at the pool are mostly swim team related—lots of morning practices and evening meets. My boys love being a part of our wonderful neighborhood team! And the projects we’re tackling involve building, painting, shopping, sorting, cleaning, organizing, etc. Add to this all of the writing-related things I have going on, plus planning lessons for my church’s Vacation Bible School next week and preparing for an upcoming conference where I will be working with kids (mixing books, Bible stories, and writing—sounds fun, doesn’t it?). It's no wonder that I am feeling a bit crazy these days. It’s all fun stuff, though!

So while I am not writing as much as usual these days, I am most definitely gathering life experiences to use in my writing one day. And when I do find a few hours to work, I make it really count. In July, things *should* settle down a bit, and I’m looking forward to catching up on my writing, reading, and relaxing. Until then, I am going to "just keep swimming," like Nemo's friend Dory so wisely says. 
Go Barracudas!
Happy Writing!


  1. That's right! Just keep swimming!

    1. Dory is so wise...my boys used to LOVE the movie NEMO. All of those times I watched it with them have definitely left an impression on me! = )

  2. Gathering experiences is important. These summers will be a faint memory all too soon, trust me.

    1. I know, that is why I am determined to enjoy every minute! My sweet boys are growing up way too fast.
