Kids Come Alive at Summertime: Embracing the Season of Adventure

June marks the beginning of summer, bringing with it a sense of excitement, a little extra free time, and a shift in lifestyle for kids. It’s a time when the days are longer, the weather is warmer, and possibilities seem endless. As a parent, I’ve always cherished the start of summer for my children, as it opens up a world of opportunities for us to come together as a family and create cherished memories. Join me as I share my love for summertime and how we embark on an adventure-filled season that nourishes both body and soul.

Planning Summertime Delights

Sitting on my deck, I immerse myself in the joy of planning menus for summer snacks, lunches, and dinners. From fresh produce to homemade treats, I strive to create delectable meals that bring the family and friends together. With each dish, we savor the flavors of the season, delighting in the bountiful harvest of fruits and vegetables.

Essentials for Summer Fun

Embracing a Basic Lifestyle

During summer, we embrace a more basic lifestyle, encouraging our children to explore new activities and embrace change, even if they have scheduled sports or school programs. Summertime is about breaking free from routine and embracing the joy of spontaneity. It’s an opportunity to try different things, expand our horizons, and revel in the simple pleasures that this vibrant season offers.


Making Memories

I make it a point to listen to my children’s ideas, questions, and wish lists throughout the year, and I compile them into a summer adventure plan. As I unveil the plan, their surprise and excitement are palpable. From trips to lighthouses and witnessing dolphins in their natural habitat to planting flowers and vegetables, organizing cookouts, volunteering, and embarking on a reading journey with unrequired books, our summer is filled with endless possibilities.

Making Memories

Summertime is a season that brings out the best in kids. It’s a time when they come alive with energy, curiosity and a zest for life. As a parent, I relish the opportunity to nourish their spirit and foster their growth during this vibrant season. Through shared experiences, delicious meals, and a sense of adventure, we create lasting memories that will warm our hearts long after the summer fades away. So, let’s embrace the magic of summertime and embark on an unforgettable journey together!
