Summer

We all have things that come to mind when we say summer.

For me there are certain smells. 

Chlorine….we get season passes to the local water park, and go to friends pools.

Fireworks….my church does this amazing patriotic event called Celebrate America and they do fireworks each night and then of course the 4th of July.

BBQ….the smoke from all the different meats and of course marshmallows…yumm

But I must say my favorite part of summer is the time I get to spend with my kids. My older kids start 7th grade this school year and I know very soon they won’t want to spend as much time as with me.

So I am choosing to make the most of the time we have right now. To bond stronger together as a family, and make memories. 

The fun of floating around the lazy river and chatting about everything and nothing. Roasting smores on the fire, laughing, talking, telling stories. Looking into the sky at the colorful explosions. Staying up late watching movies. 

Making memories…what a wonderful opportunity summer gives us. Before we head back to all the busyness of life. Make sure you take the time this summer.
