Slowing Summer Down
"The days are long but the years are short."
Any person who has raised a young child has heard this. I think in the moment a lot of us, myself included, either roll our eyes or say, "yeah I know!"
When we're in the thick of parenting, school, cooking, cleaning, holding space for, and being present for the kids we love it can be had to appreciate the moment. Especially the hard moments.
This summer, Victor and I are being intentional with slowing down. For the kids each of us is raising, for our own mental health, and to truly allow ourselves to recharge before another year of empowering kids to be seen and heard. My son knows how to swim this summer. I cannot wait to spend days at the pool and the beach, soaking up sun and these precious moments that are going to be gone before I know it.
