The end of summer...

Summer Heat

The weather begins to change this month. Some days are heat index of 100 or above, others can dip into the 70's. I love summer, but I'm usually ready for a change of season by the middle of this month. In order to survive the last of the summer's humidity, we still enjoy a last bit of summer fun.

Kayak or paddlebaord at the lake, or a weekend trip to a river nearby.  

Swim in the pool or relax at the nearby Wolf River Beach.

Zoo- water features along the zoo. 


Summer break has ended and school has been back in since August. By this time, I've tried to set a back to school routine for everyone. Summer sleeping schedule is usually back to a school schedule. Homework is back in full swing. 

Summertime has a lot of lazy days, but now that we are back to school we have to find a new rhythm. Without some kind of routine, I get a bit stressed when there are new responsibilities for all of us. I reset my routine, and I help the boys do the same for themselves. 


The end of the month we get to fall into the Autumn season. I think it's my favorite season...or do I always say that? 

The air begins to start getting crisp in the evenings. It makes me look forward to bonfires, hoodies, and more camping.
