This Amazing Summer

Despite recent struggles with being “over” summer and looking forward to the excitement of our more structured fall to come next month, looking back, we really had a fabulous June, July, and August.

Here’s all that we were able to do with a two-and-a-half-year-old and a one-year-old:

  • Travel: Went on trips to Idaho and Montana, the Jersey Shore, and Vermont.
  • Attended sporting events: Went to the U.S. Open golf tournament, saw the Eagles practice and attended a minor league baseball game.
  • Visited museums, parks, farms, and the zoo: I got the kids out and about nearly every morning this summer, visiting our local attractions several times each.
  • Made art projects galore: We explored letters, created patriotic pictures, and used lots of glue!
  • Cooled down at the pool: Just about every week, we went to the pool multiple times to dip our toes in the refreshing water.

Satisfied with all of our summer activities (the pics of the kids are just things we did in August), I am embracing the upcoming seasonal change and looking forward to the next season’s to do list, like apple picking, Halloween crafting, and football watching, among other things. I also look forward to fall and starting new activities because it’s an opportunity to learn new things and meet new people.

I always loved back-to-school time as a kid because there were so many possibilities when passing through my school’s threshold for the first time in late August. I have that same feeling this year.
