It’s summer break around here, and that brings a total change in rhythm. It’s hard to even remember to find time to blog on the usual days. 🙂 Here are a few highlights of our “summer fun” so far:
Our weekends have been jam-packed with camping, BBQs with friends, a weekend-long car project for Tony, swimming at the pool (we bought a pass for the summer, thanks to a great deal on Living Social!), and a morning of garage sale bargain hunting.
Our evenings were much busier than usual too, thanks to seven nights of swimming lessons over the past two weeks for Miss M and Mr. E. They both passed their levels and showed much improvement.
Luckily our days have been pretty slow-paced so far. Other than the fact that a two-day camping trip really takes more like 4 or 5 days of our life due to shopping, packing, unpacking, laundry, and so on…we’ve had lots of time to enjoy slow paced summer days at home. We brainstormed what we want to put on our “bucket list” for the summer. We’ve had plenty of time spent reading. The kids have enjoyed extra time for art, legos, and creative play. We’ve played with friends that it is harder to find time to connect with during the year. We are raising and observing caterpillars for the third or fourth summer in a row.
Next week, our days get busier as we participate in a a few special days of service to our community called “Mission to the City” along with others in our church.
Hope you are enjoying your summer so far too!
