Soaking Up The Last of Summer

By AngellaD on Aug. 12, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Our school district is different than many others, in that our kids don't return to school until the beginning of September. They go to school until the end of June, so we have July and August to get our summer vibe on. While we got the jump start on buying back to school supplies, we put them in the office and are ignoring them while we soak up the last of our summer break.


We live in a mountain town that sits on the edge of the lake. I'll work in the morning while the kids complete their chore list and create Minecraft worlds. In the afternoon they put on their suits, spray each other with sunblock, and we head to the beach. They swim, they throw footballs, and they sit on the beach blanket with me and eat popcorn. It's a pretty great life. School is around the corner, but we're not quite ready for it.

How do you spend the last few weeks of summer break?

  • This is our last week of summer before the kids start back to school. We've been hanging out with nana, organizing our house, and just getting back to school supplies ready to go. We've already done our big vacations for the year till December. Oher than that not a whole lot.

  • We are already back to school.  We didnt do anything out of the ordinary before school started except get the kids back on their sleep schedules.

  • This is the last week for us. I'm so sad summer vacation is coming to an end. I think we'll spend our time watching some movies, cooking some favorite family meals and going to the beach.
