Summertime, and This Smoothie is Easy



Every year I think I remember how quickly summer goes by and just how little I’ll get done while everyone is home, and every year I forget. Each day goes by so quickly, with barely enough time to get basic items checked off my list. 

That doesn’t mean I don’t outsource a lot of my school-year jobs to the kids, though. Cooking seems to be the task everyone volunteers for first… laundry is last. The nine-year old is especially interested in kitchen work this summer. She makes these smoothies almost every morning for herself and anyone else who is interested. I’m sure we’ll branch out into more exotic flavors at some point, but simple works for us right now.

Summer used to be my least favorite season, but now I love it. I love these wide-open days with these growing, changing kids. It’s the best. Hope you are enjoying summer, too. Cheers!
