Summers From Our Childhood

What Were My Parents Thinking?

by: Sharon DeVellis

Gone are the summers of my childhood, a time when summers were about playing with friends for hours on end……..unsupervised. My parents didn’t hover over us like stealth helicopters swooping in when fights broke out or dangerous activities like hanging upside down on the monkey bars or riding our banana bikes with no hands occurred.

The Sounds Of Summer

I did not set out to reclaim these memories of my childhood

by: Sharon DeVellis

It was not a conscious act on my part, I did not set out to reclaim these memories of my childhood. It was a gift.

It was a typically typical trip to the park. They were off—running, laughing, pretending, fighting, making up—and then off and running again. I was on the bench reading, occasionally glancing up to watch their antics or when they wanted my attention “Mummy, look at me! Did you see that? Are you watching? Look what I can do.”

The Real New Year

by: Sharon DeVellis

It’s not their birthdays that make me see how much the boys are growing it’s the passing of summer and the inevitability of back to school.
