nothing like a perfect summer day to remind me of other perfect summer days –
those endless summer days of childhood. Now also, having 4 kids ages
ranging from 7 to 23 months have me re thinking and reflecting what summer is
to be about.
summertime comes no homework, so my school friends and I could fill our days
with bike riding, video games and – lunch at the K-State Union! And I started wondering
– when did summertime become such a serious business? Why now, as adults,
don’t we ever indulge in the wonderful things that made summer so
special? Of course, real-world responsibilities come with adulthood, but
still – wouldn’t it be great to take some time this afternoon, grab your
friend, spouse or child and…
☺ Go to the lake and throw a Frisbee-who cares if you make a fool of
yourself. White Rock Lake is just around the corner.
☺ Ride a bicycle for fun, not exercise. Maybe even rent a
tandem bicycle from Richardson Bike Mart?!
☺ Make lemonade from scratch and share it
with your neighbors, or sell for .25cents.
☺ Find a local fair and ride the Ferris wheel
–and every other ride– at least twice. (And worry not about how qualified
there are to set it up….)
☺ Fly a kite.
☺ Take an afternoon nap – and don’t apologize
☺ Go to a baseball game. Major league, minor league or little
league- it doesn’t matter. Frisco Rough Rider tickets are very affordable.
☺ Cool off in an air-conditioned theater with
a movie that a 10-year-old would love. All the while, munch happily on a pack
☺ Pack a picnic with potato salad, fried
chicken and cookies, and say “To heck with that diet” just this once.
this summer pass you by without doing at least a few things that can make
summer so special. I hope to see you at the Lake, Ballpark or on the
Ferris wheel soon…
P.S. e-mail me and
tell me how you dared to be a kid again! Julie and the boys will be in
Alaska over the 4th – and me and the twins are yet to decide what we are up to
this weekend, a drive to Kansas?
