According to the calendar it is the first official day of summer We've been at it for a few weeks in this household! There are two sides to the lazy days of summer coin. I find the lack of structure can be both relaxing and stressful! My childhood memories of summer were full of days at the pool and trying new things at camp and I love to see my kids enjoy the new activities and experiences of the season.
