It’s May! Can you believe it? I’m busy buying end-of-the-year teacher gifts, filling out camp registration forms, and stocking up on higher SPF. But I don’t want my to do list to overshadow what’s truly important—being present with my boys.
This year’s goal is to have a #PlanBeSummer.
Be up for an adventure.
Be aware of how fast the years speed by.
This month on the site, our writers will share ideas for making travel easier, keeping our sensory seekers busy, and even how you can care for yourself so you can fully enjoy this summer. Our tips will encourage you to enjoy this summer season with your boys.
As fellow boy mom The Nester reminds us each year, most of us have just 18 summers with our boys at home! That’s 18 chances to make memories, build character, and go on adventures (close to home or far away).
How many summers do you have left with your boys? We’d love to hear in the comments!
I love this! We have 3 boys, ages 2, 4, and 6, so we’ve got (hopefully) at least 15 kid summers left. Our month of July is already pretty busy with various trips and my mother was just saying that we were doing too much. Since June is pretty empty, I disagree. My husband and I want to do as much as we can with them before they’re grown!
Excited to read this series!
I have four boys: 10, 8, 4, and 2. My prayer is to have as many fun filled summers as we can. They’re growing up so fast!!!!!!
I have 12 summers left before my son will be an adult. Whoa. I have 15 summers left before my daughter will be an adult. That feels a little less imminent.
I have two boys.. I have 16 summers w/ my little baby boy and 6 w/ my big baby boy (he likes it when I call him that).
Lord willing, I have 4 summers left with my son. He’s entering high school and will be 15 this month. Seeing I only have 2 summers remaining with his big sister, I’m reminded how quickly time disappears. However, let’s not take it for granted that we actually have this time since time is promised to no one. Let’s live today!
