Eight simple goals for summer


Just know that when you see my kids walking barefoot around town, it’s their own faults.

Goal No. 8: Find out where my little Girl went.

Last summer, her walls were covered with cute animal pictures. Now they are covered with pop band posters. How this happened isn’t a mystery; not really. It just seems to have happened so quickly while we were busy with the tyranny of everyday life.

I can think of no better time to slow down and appreciate where each child is in his or her life, because it all moves so quickly.
