Where Did the Summer of 2013 Go?
Is it just me or does it seem like summer has just started and here we are about a month away from school starting?
As I was looking at the calendar and all of the July birthdays of family and friends, it hit me, my kids will be going back to school in a few weeks. It seems like I just picked them up on their last day of school yesterday.
I started to write down the things my kids have been doing. Let’s see there is traveling Softball and Little League.Fishing, going to the lake and a little travel for the 4th of July holiday.
An upcoming trip before the middle of August to the family cabin in the Big Horn Mountains and tons of hanging out with friends.
I can’t remember the last time we sat on our deck and enjoyed a BBQ or had friends over for a few cold ones!
Now that the end of summer is staring us down, I am left wondering what happened to all of that time I was going to spend getting to enjoy summer the way I wanted too!
At what moment did life get in the way of my life? Work, pay bills, and make it a point each day to hang with my kid. As parents at what point do we lose track of what we want?
