Tomorrow will mark the official first day of summer! Which works out perfectly for me, because my kids are finishing school TODAY!
Ahhh….I love the changing of the seasons. The chance to pack up the school stuff for a few months, no more making lunches (to-go), and daily homework becomes a very distant memory. (Not to mention the lazy mornings that signify a very relaxing summer.)
As our family wraps up this school year we are going to reflect on our goals we made for the school year and we are going to celebrate with Root Beer Floats. This was the first year that we all listed goals for the school year and I have really enjoyed the daily reminder of them on our fridge. This is a new tradition that I want to keep up with for sure!
For our summer season I hope that we will be able to slow down and simply enjoy every day. I want to try some new things, but I also just want to take time to “be”. We’re looking forward to a fantastic trip to France and Scotland in July and then friends visiting us in August. Life is good.
As we wrap up this season we are also having to say goodbye to some wonderful families. To celebrate, and as sort of a send off party, we went last weekend with six other families to a beautiful beach for the day (pictured above). It was heavenly. My kids swam, boogie boarded, and played so hard all day. It was a glorious day!
A day I will always remember.
As I look ahead to this summer season I am excited for more good things that are coming on MWM. I have so much fun working on this site and being able to share with each of you all things surrounding health and home. I have begun working on an e-book that I want to have ready by the next season. 🙂 And I am continuing to work on growing and developing this site into a great resources for all things about how to live with more intention.
It’s going to be a great season!
Happy Summer and have a FABULOUS weekend!
