It’s June, and my daughter Katie has a one-week break before summer school starts. (Actually Open Mind School operates year-round, so unlike most public school programs, it will be regular school that happens in the summer months.) It might be a short break, but we are packing in as much fun and relaxation as possible.
Following her graduation ceremony last week, Katie immediately headed off to four days of summer camp at ViaWest in the Cupertino Foothills. This gave me several days to spend with my boyfriend Christopher, attend poetry events, watch movies, and hang out with girlfriends.
I picked Katie up from camp Tuesday afternoon, and we had an evening to do piles of laundry. Yesterday we drove up the coast to enjoy warm sand and ocean breezes for a few days.
I’ll be using my time to relax, read, hike, and do some writing. Katie will do as little as possible besides hike and swing. We both need time to unplug and rest. It’s been a busy spring.
In two weeks I’ll be back, blogging about my unplanned life. Whatever you are doing, relax a bit, feel grateful for what you have, and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. I’ll see you soon!
Until next time,
