Boys are busy.  When my little guys are at home there is a constant stream of movement and activity.  It’s harnessing that energy into a forward moving, positive momentum that is my task.  How do I attempt to do that? With plenty of summer activities, of course! 

There is no epic summer vacation this year (because of our recent move), instead we are having what I refer to as “junior adventures”.   Luckily we now live in an area that has a plethora of new sights to see and activities to pursue.  Creating memories is so much fun!
