Savoring Summer
July 16, 2014 · Posted in Parenting · Permalink

Summertime is for collecting. Collecting shells, sea glass, fireflies and memories. Collections are like strings of little pearls of summer, a physical remembrance of special times growing up. Think back to your memories of summer. The smell of grass, the ocean, the feel of diving into a clean, cool swimming pool. It is a sensuous time of the year and hopefully, a slower one. Summer is a time for regrouping. For adults it goes by in a flash, but for children the summer is a long stretching season.

This summer, focus in on the sights, smells and tastes that are sacred summertime things:  Watermelon and bar-b-q, sand castles and catching frogs, sun-kissed skin and fireworks. Quiet New York days in the hot, hot park. Savor these times with your children. They will be embedded in their minds forever.
