Summer is winding down with the end of August and the start of the new school year. This is when most parents reflect upon their summer with their kids and remember all the special memories they created. What special memories did your family make?
This summer, my family took a much needed vacation to the Lake George region of upstate New York. After a whole year of working hard on Celeb Baby Laundry, I needed two weeks to unwind and spend some quality time with my daughter, Ava, and husband. That’s why we chose to go back to cottage I vacationed at with my own family for 18 years. I love the rustic feeling and being right on the lake.
Without the distractions of the internet, I was able to enjoy a relaxing vacation without work. We spent time on the beach where Ava had a ball learning how build tunnels and castles in the sand. I also realized that my little three-year-old is a little fish (just as I was as a kid). We bought her puddle jumpers to help her swim in deep water and by the fourth day she was swimming all the way to the beach raft with mommy and daddy. I was a proud mom seeing how confident Ava was because she can hesitant when it comes to doing things outside of her comfort zone. Her excited giggles brought a smile to my face every time!
Like most families, the summer is over for us. Ava has officially started preschool at her school and we we’re also moving in the next couple of weeks. Right now, I have no time to think of the last days of warm weather! I have started packing and our house is slowly turning into a pile of boxes!
