With that said, I have made the decision that until school starts back up again this August, I'll be cutting way back on blogging and social media activities. I only have 2 more summers before Mariah heads off to college, and I want to be present for as much of her free time that I can. I still plan to blog here 2, maybe 3 times a week, and will do my best to make my blog rounds and answer emails as frequently as possible. I can't stay away from my readers and blog friends for too long without going crazy ;)
So, how have we been filling summer? Sadly, it's been raining almost every stinkin' day, but we aren't letting that dampen our spirits! Friday we decided that since we were going to be wet anyway, why not head to the splash pad for some water fun.
We've been doing a little frog hunting.
Having some park fun.
At night we like to kick our feet up by the fire!
Going to the $1 theater, catching up on Netflix, and volunteering at the pet shelter are also great ways we've been filling in our days. As long as we are spending it together, we are finding the little joys in every day life. One thing that has really pleased me this summer, is watching my kids gain more confidence in the kitchen. The girls are taking turns making each other lunch, and I love that not only are they being kind to each other, they are learning a life long skill in the process.
Here's some great news for parents. Your kids don't need to be a master chef to have fun in the kitchen. Family Finest is getting kids excited to get in the kitchen and create some delicious masterpieces.
