Summer at home for us has always meant a lot of things. And every summer for us has been a bit different.
Even thought the kids are out of school, I’ve always worked, or we’ve always had some major project going on.This year, we’ve made an active choice to really enjoy summer this year and not quite jam so many things into it.
Last summer, we had a major renovation we weren’t expecting kind of thrown at us, and I feel a bit like the kids were cheated. It took all summer, most of our cash and lots of time.
I feel like we lost an entire summer with our kids, and I know time is only going by faster. In a few summer, they will want to be off doing their own thing.
Plus, I can be so high strung, I always feel like I need to go-go-go when I really should be resting and enjoying what is going on right now instead of worrying about the next thing.
I decided this summer is going to be about:
Working in the garden
Letting the kids work on fun little projects like this fairy garden we started.
Oldest built the bridge and was so proud of it! It’s going to be a crafty summer. 🙂
I just want us to hang out, enjoy the summer together and let the days take us where they may. I know the Fall is going to bring busy things with my book release
and I just want us to be able enjoy the days for what they are.
Thank you so much for letting us share our summer at home with you!
Stop over at these other bloggers spend their summers!
