Summer Fun

There really is not much about summer that I dislike and those few things (namely mosquito, sunburns and allergies) I am willing to tolerate for lovely weather and all the fun things that go along with it!

There is just something about the warm weather that makes me feel at peace. 

I am really looking forward to making a lot of memories this summer. So far, we have a road trip planned to go back and visit family and friends take in some local attractions. A must see on our list is this Dam that neither my husband nor I ever went to while living in the area.

We will also be definitely getting out for some camping trips as it is one of our favorite ways to enjoy the outdoors. Catching frogs, swimming, hiking, campfires, and all the rest of the fun that goes along with it.

When you feel like you have failed

Parenting is not an easy job. It’s a long journey, one filled with joy, heartbreak and challenges along the way.

Our parenting journey has had the added experience of our kids having been diagnosed with varying conditions meaning that both of them require extra supports at school and at home.

We are lucky to have had some great experiences working with some of the people on our teams. 

If there was one area that I would pinpoint as a challenging one to navigate it would be the school system. There are so many different variables and people involved that it can be difficult to coordinate everyone on the team and find effective ways to communicate among each other.
