Last summer went by way too fast. Like it was the quickest summer ever. Part of that was probably because I had started a new job in April of last year and had transitioned from working 4 days a week to 5.
This new job was in a more laid back atmosphere and closer to home, the only drawback being I was working more. And I guess this one extra day a week at work played a part in feeling that I had less time with my family. Which, I did.
So this is all the more reason to set out for this upcoming summer with a game plan in mind. I know I have to be intentional with my time off work to make the most of one of the most fun seasons of the year. I only get 18 summers with my children and I want to make these summers the best ever. With the exception of our family vacation to Orange Beach last year, we didn’t go swimming nearly as much as I would have liked. We also never made it to an amusement park for my ride lovin’ daughter. Some of the things on this list we did get to last year but they bear repeating.
