How to enjoy, not just endure, your summer

My childhood summers were blissful. We spent hours splashing in the pool, playing kickball in the neighbor’s backyard, riding our bikes, and playing hide and seek at dusk. We planned epic zip lines and designed treehouses worthy of a future HGTV show. We dreamed of the days we could drive ourselves to the Dairy Queen. We played Clue and Monopoly when it rained. If I sound nostalgic, it’s because I am.

A few years ago I began to dread summer. I began to see that my son’s childhood summers would not be exactly like mine. And while that is ok, it can also be hard. I want to pick strawberries. He wants to play computer games. I want to take long walks in the woods. He wants to watch movies.

Can you relate?

Summer can be a long string of days we simply endure. It can be an emotional mess of forcing our own agenda, arguing with our kids, and battling guilt. But, it doesn’t have to be.

Have you ever found yourself counting the days until school starts? Have you desired easy-breezy days and faced the reality of struggle and tension?

If so, I’d love to help. I don’t promise utopia, but I do promise a plan to help you set realistic expectations. I promise if you stick to your plan, you will experience more joy and fewer disappointments. Sound good to you?
