Hi friends! Jenny here and I’m feeling a little nostalgic! I’m not quite ready for summer to end but the reality is the clock is ticking pretty loudly now. Here comes that old familiar feeling of slight end of season panic… when the majority of the vacation turns to memories. Suddenly I’m looking at the calendar and asking myself what’s left on our to-do list!
Did we travel enough, did the kids have more fun than they could handle, did we fill our days with that perfect mix of adventure and relaxation?
It’s bittersweet of course because after 10 weeks, I think we’re all ready for a little bit more routine and structure in our day but at the same time, who wants to say goodbye to summer? Not this Mama!
We’ve had some awesome days, that’s for sure. I’m happily checking trips to the zoo, afternoons at the county fair, beach weeks and oodles of swimming off the summer list.
But what’s left? We’ve got two weeks, and I’m determined to squeeze in whatever we can. I’m talking about a picnic under a shady tree, a spontaneous day trip, another sleepover or two for sure. I’m heading down to the basement today to pull out our tent because you know what? No summer would be complete without camping out in the back yard underneath a star filled summer sky.
Also, more ice cream. Lots more ice cream.
Cheers to summer, friends!
What are some of your best memories? Anything left on your summer to-do list?
