school is out


This is the first FULL week of summer in our house and I am EXCITED!  Summer kicked off at the end of last week as a group of us went to see Zac Brown in concert and celebrated the end of school with our  annual neighborhood pool party.  Despite the MASSIVE thunderstorms that lasted almost an hour at the beginning of BOTH events, everyone who made it out had a blast!

Our summer is packed with lots of fun kids and family activities that we are really looking forward to; camps, new books, day trips, beach trips, learning new languages, church events, family get-togethers, concerts and hanging with friends….

What are your plans for the summer? Do you have a favorite place to go or summer tradition? Are you trying something new this summer? Please share YOUR stories with us  in the comments…..
