Author Ashley Ludwig's Recession Home

From sweet to romantic suspense, join me as I craft my happily ever after…

Summer A-Z Project: What did you do over your summer stay-cation?

Right before school started, we sat down for dinner as is our nightly routine. The girls were antsy. Wiggling. Wanting to get back outside to play even though tomorrow was (gulp!) a school day.

I introduced a game off the top of my head. They’re always up for brain-teasers, thanks to their dad’s endless encouragement of the sport.

“Let’s play Summer, A-Z!” I spouted, pouring milk into pink and yellow Ikea plastic cups.

“How?” Rachel leans forward, figuring out a way to win, as always…”

“Let’s think of things we did…Starting with the letter A–” and before I could finish, she interrupted!

“Arizona! We went to Arizona!”

“With Ashley!” Ellie agreed, laughing, and pointing at me. She loves using my first name right now. Ha ha.

And, so we went along, re-discovering our summer of fun, by the letter.

I encourage you to sit down to dinner with your kids. Make up games to get them to talk! we went on through the alphabet.
