Vasquez: Cherished moments of summer

Summer has arrived and the birds are jubilantly chirping, the flowers are delightfully fragrant, and the sun-kissed blueberries are ripe enough to eat. Ah, summer. What’s not to like? Gardening, family strolls through San Juan Bautista and the occasional trip to the beach are just a few of my personal favorites. Prior to summer break [for my kiddos] I was carefully mapping out [their] summer enrichment programs. Swimming, YMCA day camp equivalents, and trips to the Boardwalk … You know, the usual. I was reflecting on the total cost of keeping my two boys engaged, busy and entertained throughout the summer. I kept thinking that just the attempt to make sense of the summer shenanigans was in itself absurd. I stopped jotting all the happenings and events in my calendar and did what any like-minded mother would do. I called my best friend for some of that old-time enlightenment.
