So far I am loving summer. Not only am I getting to sleep a little bit later than normal (7:30 a.m. is a luxury!), but I’m also getting to catch up on much needed time with the kids. We’re hitting the pool, the library, and sitting down to do projects together. And we’ve discovered that they love to help in our home garden. Yay! Free labor! My dad always said it was good to put us kids to work when I was growing up, and Matt and I are in agreement with him. We love that the kids are reaching an age where they are able to pitch in and help out. Not to mention, I’m a big believer in teaching work ethic, and I think chores are a good thing for that.
Earlier this month though, we celebrated the start to summer with a day at the Herndon Fair. The kids shopped the craft shows and made the rounds on the carnival rides. I followed just a few steps behind trying to take as many photos as I could. They are growing up so fast, I want to catch as much as I can for our memories.
Here’s a few of my faves from the day:
And then it was time to go home . . .
Excited for more adventures this summer!!!!
