Our Top 4 Recommendations for Your Summer Reading
We are officially three weeks into summer. The days are longer, the humidity is high, and our neighborhood pool’s Snack Shack already has my kids’ treat orders memorized.
I hold a special appreciation for summertime. After spending many past summers as my children’s designated cruise director (i.e. scheduling an endless variety of activities), I decided that this would be the year that I turned in my resignation.
The rapid race pace of the school year is over and I long for a slower speed. I do not want to sprint through the next two months. I want a leisurely summer saunter, which cannot be achieved without intention. So, I intend to sit more, talk more, play in the pool, go fishing, make s’mores and even head to camp. But above all else, I intend to work through my summer reading list.
This year I chose books that align with my goals of slowing down, staying present and spending more time passing on traditions, values, and wisdom to the next generation.
