Welcome to the July 2015 Carnival of Natural Parenting: Summer Fun

This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Carnival of Natural Parenting hosted by Hobo Mama and Code Name: Mama. This month our participants have talked about how to get out and enjoy the warmer season as a family.

Summer is all about play. For many, summer used to be this wonderful time of the year when there wasn’t much to do.  Summer was a time with few responsibilities.  I could read and play as much as I wanted and the days were long and filled with sunshine.

That was back when I was a kid.

Summer marked a time of growth and transition from one school year to the next.

My responsibilities are much greater now.  Yet, I know summer can still be wonderful, full of play, reading, and fun in the sun.

Baby Boy is far from “school aged” and we don’t ‘officially’ homeschool him yet.  I’m grateful to be able to stay home with him each day, so our overall routine doesn’t change in summer.  We do a few things a bit differently though.

There’s more time outside, basking in the beauty of the sun.

Time at the park.

So much more water play.

Great cold glasses of water. And some homemade “ice cream”.

The lovely scent of clothes dried on the line, with that summer sun warmness to them!

How has your summer shaped up so far? Are you enjoying many relaxing days or are you busy all the time?
