I've officially been back to school for two days! We've had an orientation session and a professional development session so far. I'll be off the rest of this week and back to school when the kids return on Tuesday. You may have noticed I've been a bit absent on the blog lately. I've really tried to spend some time this summer just "being" in the moment, enjoying my son, and relaxing! I think we all need time to relax and unwind and many of us (especially those of us who are also mommies) feel that we need to constantly be busy...I know I often feel guilty when I'm not doing something.
As an end-of-summer wrap-up, I figured I'd share some of the fun things we've done...
We went fishing with my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew. My son LOVED it!
We also got a fire pit for our yard and, if you can believe it, I made S'mores for the first time in my life!
Here are some other highlights:
We spent a LOT of time in my yard. My in-laws bought my son a gym set for the yard and we have the kiddie pool with a slide. We went to lots of fairs and festivals, a couple of zoos, the splash pad, and the beach! My city, New Bedford, MA is known as "The Whaling City." We ended up at the whaling museum, saw some whale skeletons and replicas of the whale boats. The museum is in the downtown area of the city, which is paved in cobblestones!
I had many more things on my to-do list that we did not get done, but we did have a lot of fun! I hope you all enjoyed your summer vacations as well!
