Parent to Parent As the school year winds down, May is always a busy time for families with school-aged kids — not quite as busy as December, but close. Except this year, with three of my four kids “graduating” from their respective levels, the number of end-of-year

programs, field trips, and other activities seems to be significantly higher than normal. Throw in two birthdays in our family, a few doctor appointments, and a house that is still recovering from Hurricane Irma, and I think May’s “busy” factor is going to far surpass December’s this time around. Having taken advantage of dual enrollment courses during high school, my oldest, David, is now graduating from college after three years with his B.F.A. in Graphic Design. Daniel has one more year of high school, but Hanna is graduating from middle school, and Haylee is finishing up elementary school. Poor Daniel may be feeling a little left out, but fortunately, one of the birthdays this month is his, so he’ll at least be the center of attention for one day. And next year, when he finishes high school, he’ll be the only one in the family reaching a major milestone.

Haylee apparently picked up on that, because last night, as we were leaving to go grab dinner at Chickfil-A, she picked up the UNO cards and announced that this would be a good opportunity to play a game. We would be sitting down to eat anyway, so we might as well have a little fun while we were at it. So that’s what we did! We played four rounds at the restaurant, it was relaxing, and we were still done in plenty of time to go take care of the other errands we had to do.

While I don’t ever get overly stressed out — I take the view that these events are going to happen whether we’re completely ready for them or not — I do tend to be pretty focused on making sure I’m doing the next “most urgent” thing during times like this. So playing games with the kids really hasn’t been on my radar recently.

Sometimes fifth graders can come up with some of the best ideas! Until next time,

Jennifer
