I hope you all have been enjoying your Summer. I can’t believe that August is almost here, which means back to school, soccer and the regular routine will be starting up very soon! I have to admit I’m not looking forward to everything starting again. It will be fun, but things are going to be busy. I think I’ve been enjoying our laid back Summer a little too much!

It’s not like we have been sitting around all Summer, because in a lot of ways, we are busier now than we were during the school year (just in a different way with day trips, swim lessons, play dates and lots of swimming).

Since it has been a while since I have posted, I thought I’d share how we have been spending our Summer days lately…

Going to the beach the first part of Summer.

Picking peaches!

Lots of swimming (especially with my nieces, who sadly left yesterday after being here for two weeks!).

Playing Just Dance and eating banana splits!


Harvesting our garden’s produce…

Though, we haven’t done too much, it has been a great Summer. We are having fun, enjoying the warm weather, and making memories!


How is your Summer going?

Do you find you are busier during the Summer than you are during the school year?
