As August arrives, I find myself thinking, “great , we have one more month of Summer” and then thinking, “OH NO, only one more month of Summer!”. I am already feeling the stressors of some of the scheduling and planning of the coming school year. Our son will be starting High School and we know the challenges will be real, but are excited about the new opportunities he will be having. Our daughter will be a Senior and that is incredibly overwhelming for me! So, I choose to focus on the now, create some more memories, have some new adventures and make these last few weeks count!
We will be heading to SC in a few days, it is an annual Summer tradition to visit family and it is one of the prettiest spots we have been to. This picture is from a trail we visited in Charlottesville followed by peach ice cream at Carter’s Mountain!
I am making great progress with my Summer reading goal too, book 4 is almost done and the 5th is waiting!
It is amazing how to find small pockets of time to make this happen. Taking a break from personal social media has been the best ! Want to know another silly goal I set for myself? Jump rope- yup! A few minutes a day- it brings me back to my childhood AND the workout is a great one! 🙂
We have lots of great content for you, we are starting some back to school prep and will continue that all month. I hope you find it helpful.
Our calendar is really full of ideas for your Summer planning. I hope you can find something that works for your family unit, or for a date night !
