June welcomed our annual beach trip to the Washington coast. And so far July has been full of summer camps and menial, but productive home projects. It has been simple like summer should be. Once August arrives though, whoa, things pick up at breakneck speed around here! By the time we turn the calendar to September and start homeschooling I think I’ll be more than ready to return to routine. Is your summer wild too?
We were at the beach when I normally share my monthly mom.me posts so today you get an onslaught of both June and July’s posts. Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!
