The countdown is on. In exactly 2 weeks, my oldest son starts Kindergarten so I am squeezing in as many activities for summer fun as our days can hold. Last week we baked cookies for the firemen. When we delivered them, we got a tour of the firetrucks and rescue vehicles. Then my hubby took us for a tour of his work (he’s an engineer for a large truck/semi corporation) which was really neat! We’ve ridden bikes and trains and buses and water taxis. We visited a planetarium and played with our cousins. I feel the time crunch as the summer is ending and am trying to fit in as much fun as possible. My boys, on the other hand, just want to stay home and play outside riding bikes and doing Legos. Sometimes it’s the littlest things that matter most!
What are you doing to finish up summer before school begins?

I love natural, made froms scratch marinade, sauce, and spice recipes… and this one sounds delicious! Plus, it’s versatile… use it as a marinade or a dressing for salads! Unfortunately, my hubby is not a mushroom fan, but it would be simple to adapt to fit any palatte. I can’t wait to try it!
I cannot tell you how much I love this post and how true this rings for our family as well. We prefer pretend play, bike rides, and working in the yard to TV or video games. We love entertaining friends and love doing game nights with guests! These are the things I want my kids to know and remember… that mom & dad took time for them, played with them, and asked them about their day rather than living behind the screen of a computer or phone.
This is one of the BEST and MOST HELPFUL Back to School shopping posts I’ve ever read! If you have kids headed to the classroom, check this out! Easy ways to price compare, tax-free days for school supplies in some states, and more! I’m so glad I read this and you will be too!
Let’s get the party started!
