With both boys out for summer vacation and the first true day of summer coming up in a little over a week, I thought it would be fun to do a summer post roundup. It’s always interesting to look through the Zealous Mom archives and visit old posts, and it’s especially fun to focus on a certain season then bring together posts from various years. I hope you and your family are getting excited about the next few months and all memory making that’s sure to happen. Below are a few of my favorite summer-themed posts.
I love beginnings so it’s no wonder I love the start of summer. June, July and August are stretched ahead of me like a blank canvas ready to be painted with new memories. By the time school starts, I’m sure I’ll be completely over the hot weather and unstructured days, but right this moment, I’m feeling pumped.
We have a very busy summer with a lot of trips, camps, swim meets and conferences. We’re even going on our first family tip involving passports. Woot! And somewhere amidst all the activity, I have to find time to work and meet deadlines, but I’m totally willing to figure it all out. So yes, this summer is going to be the opposite of lazy. Nevertheless, I’m super excited. We’re a pretty adventurous family, so it should be a lot of fun. I want the boys to slow down growing up but one benefit of them getting older is the opportunity to travel more and their ability to better process and enjoy life experiences.
What about you? What are you and your family up to this summer? I would love to hear about your plans!
