Time disolves in the summer

Summer time is a good time to switch gears.  Things are still hopping around here - teachers working on Language Arts curriculum, preparing crazy and creative activities for camp.  But time does move a little slower.  Maybe it is the clarity of the light or the sweet juice of summer fruit.  

Here is a great article by Nancy Gibbs To the Time Machine about memories in summer - the gift of lazy long days with a book, days with no screens in sight.  Nostalgia for summer camp and sweet summers gone - don't forget to savor the flowers.
