Normally, the end of the school year isn't terribly busy. This year is an exception. With Madeline's graduation, Jackson's birthday, and Father's Day all falling within days of one another, we're pressed for free time. Stolen moments have been precious and few. Thankfully, one such occasion happened earlier in the week.
We're blessed with pretty fabulous weather in Southern California, and when one of my friends suggested we take the children to the splash pad after school, I couldn't help but feel a little giddy. Sitting down to relax, spending some time with a friend, watching my little boy play with one of his~it sounded just about perfect (and it was).
We had a great afternoon together. When you have a busy season in your life, it really is great to have friends that remind you to slow down. Our days are starting to pick up with many graduation activities, but I know we'll manage to sneak in some down time. These next few weeks, just like Tuesday afternoon, are sure to be a splash!
