Back to school for the kids and back to blogging for me. This summer went by extremely fast. We went from nothing planned to a summer full of events, camps, travel and more. Even though it went fast, we had a great time and shared some amazing memories. One of them was going to a beautiful lake for vacation. The beach is our usual vacation spot, but this year we went with something different and were so glad we did. As I kid, I went to the lake every summer with my family and grandparents, so I was excited to experience the same thing with my husband and kids. The boys had so many “firsts” on this trip. I loved sitting back and watching them leap into the lake, hold on tight while riding the tube and scream “faster” on the jet skis. We also were able to travel to California and Louisiana to visit friends and family. We savor every chance we get to see them. (Check out some snaps of our adventurous summer below)
And now we are back to getting on schedules with school, sports, work, groups, etc. This is always a fun transition…said no one ever! Liam is starting first grade and playing flag football and Nixon is starting Pre-K and playing baseball. We are excited to see how they continue to grow and learn. I also absolutely love watching them play sports and yes, I am sometimes the mom who is obnoxiously screaming from the stands for their kids. With all that the rest of the year holds, I am excited to share some new stuff on the blog. I have some new recipes I’ve tried out, parenting tools I have found and some things I am learning about in life. So happy “Back to School” and “Back to Blogging” everyone. I am looking forward to connecting again next week….And just a hint I might be sharing a little something about avocados.
