Hello, It's Me Again ...and Welcome, Summer!

Hello, sweet blog friends!

Are you excited that summer is here?  I sure am!  Our family is ready for our annual, long break from regular schooling and is looking forward to lots of fun over the next few months.  

I am also happy to be back in blogland!  I've missed it a lot and hope to find a better rhythm over the summer--one that is more sustainable for me in this season of life.  

Some things that we have planned for this summer are family reunions, summer reading programs, a birthday celebration, vacation Bible school, a Great American Road Trip, maybe even camping--if I can talk my husband into it!

What do you have planned for the summer months?  I'd love to hear about your plans!

Hey Lora! Great to hear from you again in the blog world! The last post of yours I read was when you recommended Kristen Welch's "Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World." My hubby and I went on a date last week and I stopped by a book store and bought that book. I have to tell you...I'm LOVIN' it! This summer, we've got a couple trips planned--one short 2-day trip and one long week trip. As far as homeschooling, we don't take a break from math or reading, so we'll be doing that throughout the summer. We take lots of breaks/vacations throughout the year, so that's why we usually have to continue math and reading year-round. We'll also put the pool up and cook on the grill most meals...keep the heat out of the kitchen! The garden is in and I'm ready for those fresh veggies!!! Hope you enjoy your summer and see you in the FALL for Co-Op!

Hi, Lacy!

Thanks for your comment! So glad to hear that you are enjoying Kristen Welch's book. It is so good~I think that should probably be a re-read on my summer book list :)

Sounds like you have a great summer planned. We also will be doing lots of reading and some math practice over the summer (no summer brain drain, right?!) even though we aren't technically year-rounders.

And, yes, we are already excited about fall co-op, too :)
