The Waning Days of Summer

City Museum, St. Louis

Just wanted to give you all a heads up that The Risky Kids will be taking a mini hiatus for the next 3 weeks.  Not coincidentally, that’s about how long we have until school starts again.  The summer is flying by too quickly, and the kids and I collectively agree that we need more Ferris wheels, pool days, pajama fests and general sloth-iness in our lives before we return to alarm clocks, school buses and homework.  This is also the last stretch of time I have to spend with Eli before he enters the world of kindergarten.

I have a feeling you’d rather spend your last few days of summer vacation enjoying it rather than reading about it on someone else’s blog.  So shut the computer down and go do something totally lazy and indulgent.  I don’t care how old you are, summer only comes once a year and it’s meant to be savored.

Lisa has a few posts in the works that may (or may not) get published in the meantime.  When we return in mid-August we’ll have loads of cool content to get you back in Risky mode just in time for fall’s cooler temperatures.  Thanks for understanding.  I can’t write authentically about living the playful life if I don’t take the time to play myself.  Enjoy the rest of your summer and we’ll see you soon!
