Here’s why . . .
Summer 2013 by the numbers:
Number of days spent away from home … 25+
Number of trips to the pool … 15+
Number of playdates … 15+
Number of books read to the kids … 100+
Number of long talks, shrieks of joy, huge grins, and hours spent surrounded by family and friends who might as well be family … too many to count!!
Number of fiction words written … 5,000
Number of blog posts written … 7
I’ve spent my summer trying very hard not to worry about writing. And in July I made the conscious decision to take the end of July and most of August off. It’s been both liberating and irritating. Liberating because it lightened a very fun-filled but hectic August schedule. Irritating because I kept thinking of things I wanted to write about!
Number of days before the boys start preschool … 7!
Now that we are down to a week before all three kids will be back in school, I’m flexing my blogging muscles and remembering how to work this into the schedule. (For those of you wondering, yes, I’m flexing my fiction muscles, too.)
I’m excited to share some of the things God’s been teaching me this summer.
Here’s to a new season of experiencing life Out of the Boat! I hope you’ll join me on the water.
