This summer certainly has been filled with many great adventures which has given me much to think about. Between hiking alone or with friends, to day trips with the family, to my summer school teaching position, to whatever else may come I have grown and changed into a stronger woman this summer. Facing challenges can be a very difficult time, but when you break through and can see the positive growth on the other side, it makes the journey memorable.
As the seasons begin to change in my neck of the woods, I plan on walking forward with a new found strength not only in myself but in my relationships with friends and family.
Before fall fully takes over, we are making the most of every last day of summer!
We enjoyed our local "Bear Paw" Festival
especially the cotton candy after having two very good listeners and no complaining about what rides they were not big enough to ride yet! I definitely have some thrill seeker children as they wanted to ride the "Zipper"
We've done a couple more camping trips to Whittier hoping to stock our freezer with shrimp and halibut. I couldn't resist snapping a photo of their early morning snuggles.
Enjoying sunshine and just running around - I love that these two can make any situation fun. Papa and I were busy helping our elderly friend with her garden and house projects and I over hear these two making up a game about the store was by a big tree and they were pretending to grocery shop with the different things on the ground. I love their imaginations.
We also had a visit from our cousins! Nothing serious with them of course - great to see family!
All this time this summer with Papa's family, has me missing my family. So, with summer school coming to an end this week, the kiddos and I will be boarding a plane late Friday night to head to Wisconsin for a week! Crazy!?! A bit - yes... but looking forward to one more summer adventure before we settle back into the regular school year.
I hope you all are enjoying your summer adventures!
