While I am known to not be a big fan of summer heat, I do have an ongoing love affair with (bug less) summer evenings. The light changes, the breezes shift, the air smells of earth and plants and water, and things just feel different.
I love taking the boys out for summer evenings...ice cream or popsicles, walks, parks, beaches.
It is quiet. Not many people are out. And it seems we all just sink in and just talk and enjoy each others company.
It may be simple, but I love it. We all love it. Even in this unschooling life full of time to be together, there are moments that are a little *more* because we consciously create them, knowing we are in the moment together.
Just us. On a beautiful summer night. And life is good.
