I am sure many of you have noticed that my blog has been much quieter than usual lately. With summer finally here & all this beautiful weather, most of our days are now spent in the great outdoors rather inside doing arts & crafts. Teaching moments are now in the form of nature lessons and the play kitchen & Little People have been traded in for days at the park & the beach.
This has been a fun year for our family. Two year old Mai is fascinating. With her increased comprehension, independence & fearlessness, she has been a joy to watch grow. This summer she enjoys everything more than the last.
Where last year the swings were a scary new thing, this year they are a park favorite. Jungle gyms feed our daughter’s love for climbing & slides elicit a sound of happiness so sweet that it should be bottled.
Last year’s swimming lessons paid off as Mai has embraced her love for water. She is fearless in the pool, the lake & the ocean wanting to dive in and swim on her own much to mommy’s horror.
This summer all the warmth that I have felt so far has not been from the sun on my skin, but from the happiness in my heart.
