As summer winds down and the kids count down the days until school, I’m anxious to plan a few special things for my boys to do this week.
We’ve done our theme weeks, where we’ve not only enjoyed some special trips to the water park and the horse stables but also learned some important lessons on water conservation and recycling.

I love to run. More importantly, I love how I feel after I’ve run. I’m happy, energized, relaxed, patient, and much more pleasant to be around.
When I don’t get my run in on any given day, I feel pretty out of sorts. So while I absolutely love having my boys home for the summer, I struggle to find the time for a full workout.

It’s hard to believe summer break is right around the corner. I find I tend to have a different opinion than many other stay-at-home moms I know in regards to having the kids home for 3 months. Most of them search to find multiple summer programs for their kids to attend in order to avoid having their own usual routine interrupted. But I love when my kids are home with me. I mean, they are the reason I gave up my career in the first place. Yes, when they are in school I get into a groove of my own with the few hours I have alone each day, but before every school break, I commit to successfully creating and adopting a new schedule that will accommodate the three of us.

Oh, the dog days of summer! Come July and August, we are all looking for some relief from the heat. So, while you are sitting in the shade sipping iced tea, your dog may be panting away, trying to cool down.
Dogs don’t sweat like we do. Instead, they pant to help regulate their body temperature. But that isn’t always enough. Sometimes they need a little help from us to keep them cool, safe and healthy during the hot summer months.
Best of all, most of these tips don’t require you to buy expensive dog supplies!

Where you’re hosting a party or just need a cure for one of those “there’s nothing to do” days, outdoor games can be a lot of fun.
I grill out a lot, and it takes some time to get the food ready and cooked. Guests enjoy sitting around and chatting, but it’s nice to have some outdoor games available for more active fun.
