Summer break is nearing its end and many children, including my own, are dreading that day when they have to go back to school. Many parents are dreading the end of summer simply because the warm weather (when you live in a place like I do anyway) will be ending and it’s been nice to take the kids camping, on vacations, and so on. Though, many are also excited for it to end because then the kiddos are in school again…making things easier because they don’t have to deal with daycare, sitters, and so on when they’re at work and/or it’s easier to get things done like running errands.

However, Summer is NOT yet over and until then, many people like myself are still trying to make the most of the time they have left of the warm nights, bonfires, water parks, vacations, and so on.

In fact, last night Doug, my son, and myself went to our State Fair’s opening night. There were rides to ride, good food to be eaten, and so much fun to be had. We’re hoping to get there one more time yet, but finances will determine our eligibility of doing so. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Besides that, we have been trying to keep busy this summer by taking walks, going to parks, playing games, going swimming, having cookouts, and so on. It’s been a fairly decent break for my kiddo, minus summer school. Doug and I have enjoyed our time as well and plan to continue to do so…well all year long, no matter the weather. Some days/nights call for action and others call for a relaxing evening at home without any company.ย 

This weekend will NOT be one of those relaxing weekends. We have a wedding to go to, Doug’s cousin’s. It should be a fun time and I am looking forward to it. Doug has an amazing family and what better way to spend with them than celebrating love?

We also have to get together with my son’s dad and step-mom beforehand to discuss some issues our beloved kiddo is having, hoping to nip some issues in the butt before school starts. Sometimes things that need to be done aren’t fun, but ya just have to buckle down and do it.ย 

We also are going to church, continuing our hunt for the right church for us to continue our walk with God, one that allows us both to grow with Him and with one another. I look forward to that. He’s more of a traditional guy and I am more of a contemporary gal, but we know we can find a way to meet in the middle that will allow us to be on the right path.

We love to laugh and we try to find ways to keep laughter and joy alive in our household and in our hearts. One thing we like to do is watch shows like Mr. Bean, silly slapstick comedy that is appropriate for all ages. This is good to do when it’s been too hot and humid to do anything outdoors and will undoubtedly be great when it’s too frigidly cold out. Comedy is good in any weather, laughter is so vital in our lives. It helps us stress less and stay happy!

I hope you’ve all been finding ways to stay busy, active, and happy this summer. It’s not over yet, keep enjoying it before it’s over and it’s time to re-adapt to Autumn’s colors, cooler temperatures, school, its own holidays, and so on. But then, when it hits, we’ll just make the best of that season, as we should with them all. Much love to every one of you. God Bless!ย
