The end of summer

Last week marked the end of summer for us.  I did my best to plan some regular fun activities as well as a few adventures that were just off the beaten path for the last few days of summer break.

We spent a long day at the pool and beach staying cool, playing catch in the water, going down the big slide, and digging holes in the sand with friends.  We took a relaxing ride in a paddle boat – maybe next summer my little guy will be able to reach the pedals!  Lastly, we watched hundreds of yellow, pink, and blue rubber duckies float down the river in a fundraising race.  Our son is convinced that our ducky won!  Mixed in with these fun water-based outings was at least two trips to fun playgrounds.

We were not ready for summer to be over and for school to begin – we’ve been having too much fun this summer!  But, our son loves school and is so excited to be able to see his friends every day again.  I’m hopeful that he has many great memories from this summer to think back on while he’s daydreaming at school!
