Parenting Guru: Summer lovin' had me a blast!

We had an awesome summer!We had an awesome summer!Hard to believe summer is coming to a close. As I was reliving our awesome summer moments I came across this picture that really says it all.

We had planned to go to our county fair the day this picture was taken and when we arrived at the gates we were disappointed to learn the fair didn't open for another two hours.

The kids were devastated but we weren't going to allow a lousy few hours to ruin our family day. We found an amazing local park filled with big rocks perfect for climbing and plenty of shade to enjoy our family day.

It's been a big year for our family, lots of changes, lots of growing, lots of reprioritizing and loads of joy.

As we embark upon my older son's 4th grade year and my little one's PreK year, I'm hopeful and excited for what the future brings.

This summer has taught me a lot about myself as a parent and seeing my boys stand victorious on the big rock they climbed all by themselves that day reminds me that our family can do anything.

What were your greatest summer moments?
