Pause These Seasons…

by in Blog Posts, Inspiration, & Motivation August 18, 2016

Summer is almost over!! Some kids are back in school already and there are less than 2 weeks before our kids begin 6th and 8th grade. How does that happen? The older we (and they) get, the faster time passes.

Pause. Time flies when you are having fun.

This spring and summer season have been ones for enormous change, challenge, growth and testing our faith in the Fisher house. Jay and I both have been through major career transitions and our kids are now at the point where they want to hang with their friends ALL of the time. We have additional kids coming through our revolving door daily šŸ™‚ and we have to schedule time with our own kidsĀ on a calendar; givingĀ them fair warning, as to not “interrupt” their social time šŸ˜‰

Pause. They are growing up way too quickly.

But we do it. We make family time (even if it is just dinner together)Ā a priority as much as possible with our crazy schedules, and when it happens, we all enjoy it.

Pause. Take in each and every season.

Even with this summer being one like we have never had before, with missing trips to see some of our dearest friends and missing our annual summer trip to VA, we still made theĀ timeĀ to add some amazing memories to our album.2016-06-23 06.56.07

Nana came for a visit and we took a Ā trip to beautiful Savannah Georgia to visit family – with an all inclusive taste test at the hot sauce store on Tybee Island…2016-06-18 11.04.31

We spent 5 cherished days at the lake with my brothers and families paddle-boarding, waterskiing, swimming, fishing, running and just enjoying each others company.

Just last week, we wrapped up summer withĀ an amazing week on Ocean Isle with dear friends; complete with crabbing trips, the Olympics, fresh fish and great wine, laughs, workouts, bike rides, swimming and days spent enjoying the gorgeous weather and warm ocean water.

We packed a lot of wonderful memories into a very short summer and feel so blessed to be surrounded and supported by the people we love so dearly.

Life is such a gift. Pause. Take time. Work to find balance. Enjoy every season.
