Yep, I’m one of those moms who welcomed and cheered the beginning of the school year.
Man, Summer is HARD. I had three very energetic kids all competing for my attention for three months.
It was nothing short of exhausting! Fortunately, it was the good kind of fatigue and a wonderful Summer!
We kicked off the Summer with Nathan’s 10th birthday party!
The moderate weather made for lots of outdoor time!
And LOTS of fireflies!
Unfortunately, we also got to deal with an increase in mosquitoes, ants,
ticks, chiggers, pantry moths, and those awful oak mites. Bleh!
It was the Summer of the 17 year cicadas, which my kids got a huge kick out of.
There was no shortage of critters to keep my kiddos entertained.
We made a few trips to the Manhattan Gymnastics Academy,
the kids enjoyed some good old sibling rivalry,
and even some downtime.
There were plenty of celebrations,
a wonderful trip to Dallas over Father’s Day,
our first trip to the Omaha Zoo,
and an amazing trip to Breckenridge!
We enjoyed Good Friends
And of course LOTS of Swimming!
Simple Summer Magic!
