is in full gear....heat and all it brings is upon us. Families
are traveling. Children are busy with summer activities and
camps. Some students are taking a rest from their instruction,
while others are trying to catch up on classes they may have missed
during the regular school year. I remember the days when we
lingered, watched clouds, spent hours playing table games and held off
the night with "kick the can" tag. Oh, for a step back to
those lazy, hazy days of summer. But times have
changed....things are different.
all this busyness,
however, we have noticed something that is a concern...not enough time
is set aside for special family time. Between all the moving,
traveling, and shuttling between activities and destinations, family
takes a back seat. And the extended family is often forgotten or
an afterthought. We suggest the family consider a more quiet
contemplative time...listening to quiet
music, puzzle time, hobbies
such as sorting pictures, collecting stamps or coins, reading (each
choosing his own), discussion (choose a different unexpected topic
each time), or anything that slows the pace and brings down the tempo
of an overloaded life. When scheduling activities and outings,
make sure and schedule for the family and don't let anything push
aside this special time...no clubs, sports, play dates or
