Really? Is summer really over? I honestly can't believe school starts in just a few days. It's been a good summer though. I know you're supposed to keep your kids brains active all summer long....keep giving them homework and doing "brain stimulating things" but I just wanted to have a very kick back, fun and fancy free summer and honestly we did. No, they didn't sit in front of the t.v. all summer but I didn't park them in front of worksheets either. They just played and played and used those amazing imaginations of theirs until they collapsed...(which never happens so really it was until we threatened them with their lives to get into bed, it's 11:00 pm and you're 6 years old for crying out loud) I just wanted them to have good memories and not over-packed day/ slave driver mom memories. I can say we were successful.
Well, we had to sneak in one camping trip this year. That's what I agree to...one camping trip per year and then Trav gets to camp all he wants with the scouts and father/daughter and father/son camp-outs. So he is constantly camping. I like my one. I'm not even sure the name of the canyon or campgound we ended up in but we sure had fun. There was a river so of course they had to go wading....

We just had the most amazing vacation/family reunion. It was a long long drive so we tried to make the most of it with lots of stops and rest breaks. Our first stop was at Shoshone Falls and it was beautiful. We also stopped by a hospital in Twin Falls that Trav did work on a few years ago. It was so cool to see in real life things we had only seen in pictures and things he had designed and helped create. It's amazing!
