School is starting soon for many of our kids. The heat still sizzles, but days are now spent buying school supplies, registering, turning in forms, and getting medical checkups. Don’t know about you, but the lazy days of summer have definitely flown by for me this year.
But it is still summer for those of us in the northern hemisphere, and hopefully, you’ve got a few weeks left before the fall season begins. So… What’s on your agenda?
Last call for summer plans
Vacations, staycations, and relaxing days spent at home practicing the liturgy of life… All these things are part of the rhythm of summer. Today’s question asks you to brainstorm a few last ideas to help you sprint your way to the last leg of the season, before we get into the coolness of fall:
What are the last few things you’re going to do as a family this summer? How will you enjoy these last few days of August before school starts?
Be specific — maybe you’ll help someone else with a few ideas!
As for us, we’ll continue on our family road trip. We’re currently in Colorado, but this weekend, we’ll drive through Wyoming en route to see family in Montana. We’ll stop by Old Faithful, of course, but mostly, we’ll simply enjoy some quality family time while escaping the brutal Texas heat.
Your plans don’t have to involve travel, of course. It can be a simple summer finale barbecue in the backyard, an outing to a local tourist destination in your city, or lots of time spent at the library and neighborhood pool. The most important thing is that your plans focus on relationships and building memories. And simple almost always works best for that.
So… Have any plans?
