Somehow summer break is more than half over and there is just less than one month left until the first day of school. I'd like to say that the summer has been perfect...but these kids of mine (as they get older) seem to argue more than I care for. I'm trying and we have our good days...but not all good.
Summer started off great with our vacation to Florida. Santa Rosa Beach is a hidden gem along 30A (just outside of Destin) and totally worth the 12 hour drive. This year Bob's parents joined us too and we rented a house RIGHT on the beach. It was a wonderful vacation full of perfect weather and tons of beach time.
Just a few pics from our trip....
As soon as we got back it was basically time for father's day and Bob's birthday (which happen to fall on the same day this year). We went on our annual float trip and had a really fun day.
The kids each did 2 camps in June. Addison did a basketball camp and cheerleading camp. Lucas did a baseball camp and golf camp. Other than that we have been swimming a lot...and sometimes with friends....
We had a break from the heat (for like 5 days) and the kids and I went on a hike. That was a nice change from swimming.
I don't have a picture of this but our summer has also been spent at the baseball fields. Lucas has been playing with his club team now for almost a year. He has improved so much and had a really great spring season. His team has one game left (but it has been rained out twice and I don't know if it will ever be played). Regardless, I think they will end up in first place. Lucas worked really hard this season and he is moving up to a more competitive team this fall. He is excited and we are so proud of him.
Recently we went to Ohio to visit my friend Kris and my friend Marina met there too with her kids. We had a wonderful 4 days together. The kids love each other...and us mom's sure love each other too. We try to do this every summer and it is always a highlight.
Our 7 kids
Finally we went to my parents lake house this past weekend. It hasn't quite felt like summer...but now it does.
Hoping to fill our time with a lot more fun....school is going to start back before we know it!!!!
