Hey there! Long time, no write, huh? If you’ve been around here for awhile, you know that I’m a summer junkie, and well, this year is no different. I try to soak up every wonderful minute of summer, and apparently that means there’s less time for this little hobby of mine. There have been a few other things that have been taking up my time as well, but I do love this little blog of mine, and want to make some time for it when I can. The other problem is, my storage is almost full on this site, and it just doesn’t make sense for me to purchase a bigger plan. I write this blog as something for the kiddos and I to look back on some day and relive some of our fun memories, so paying a yearly fee for the rest of my life probably isn’t the wisest choice. 😉 Boo! I’ll figure something out though. Until then, I figured I’d write a little summer update with more to come later.
We’ve been BUSY!!! Summer just always seems to fly by, but this summer seems to have come and gone in the blink of an eye. School starts for my little man next week, and I’m having such a hard time wrapping my mind around us all getting up and out the door EVERY weekday morning. Not to mention how much I’ll miss him while he’s gone. Please, someone, say it isn’t so!! 😦 Thankfully, he’ll only be going for half days, so at least we’ll still have our afternoons together. ❤
So, what have we been up to? Well for one, we’ve been spending as much time at the cottage as possible. We’ll run up on a Tuesday and Wednesday and hang out on the beach and soak in the sun for as long as we can. We go for a walk down the beach every morning and search for beach glass. We’ve got quite a little collection started, and I love that it’s our thing. It’s been wonderful.
One of the things that is taking up a huge majority of my free time is my yoga teacher’s training. I finally committed to doing it this June, and I am SO excited about it! I’m learning so much not just about yoga, but about life, and I am loving it! There is so much work, reading, and commitment that comes with this training, but it is also so interesting and something I’m pretty passionate about, so it makes it all worth it. I should be finished and certified at the beginning of October, and I’m so excited to start teaching after that!
But back to the fun stuff… 😉 We’ve taken countless bike rides around the neighborhood. These kiddos are bike riding fools, and it makes me so happy to see.
We went camping a few weeks ago and had a blast. The sunsets were gorgeous and the company was fun, and I’m excited to book another trip again soon!
We’ve drank way too many slurpies, swam a ton, gone to the zoo, the fair, museums, berry picking, horseback riding, had park playdates with friends, gone boating, and watched the power boat races. We’ve spent tons of time in the backyard playing in the sprinkler, with water balloons and bubbles. And we’ve even had a fair share of relaxing inside and playing board games. It’s really been an amazing summer, and I’m so so thankful to be able to spend my days with these two. ❤
Summer is just such a perfect time to slow down and enjoy all the really good stuff life has to offer. ❤
I hope you’ve been enjoying yours too!
