June is almost over and if you are like me and have kids- they are super excited right about now. This has caused a lack of thinking and functionality from our three beasts. The weather is nicer and the act of being stuck in a classroom is overwhelming. Getting home and the idea of chores or homework is forgotten. Soon my children. Soon it will all be over. Summer is officially here.
And with summer comes the great scare. What do we do with kids at home for ten weeks???
Every one of my days off is slowly getting accounted for. All my freedom is becoming locked down into day trips, nature walks and BBQ dinners with friends. Long evenings sipping cold drinks are upon us. Letting the kids run around the yard until the sun goes down for the day. I have realized that my summer can be broken down into four basic hang outs.
1. My family: beaches, rivers, road trips, long walks, drive in movies.
2. My wife: relaxing in the yard, watching tv, just being besties.
3. My friends: laughs, drinks, more laughs, discovering new beers, laughing some more.
4. My work: having the ability to work both indoors or outdoors on a regular basis is a great benefit when the weather is beautiful.
