As summer is coming to an end, I've been reflecting on the past few months. I had a mental list of things I wanted to do with the kids and places I wanted to take them. We didn't even come close to do half of those things. Maybe my list was unrealistic? Maybe. Most definitely.
But when I think about this summer, I feel no regret. I don't dwell on the things we have not done.
I feel extremely happy about all the amazing memories we created, all the fun we had, all the laughs we shared.
There were swim lessons, camping, play dates with friends, crafting, hanging out by the campfire, more play dates with friends, picnics, getting slightly lost at the corn maze, outings to the water park and another to the splash park, the kids noticing the little things in nature and catching all kinds of bugs, more camping, and more and more fun with friends.
(pictures were taken last week, at the splash park)
I might not have had time to take the kids to the zoo, or had time to visit the farmers market in the city like I wanted to, but I am very pleased with the summer we had. We all had so much fun, and the kids were smiling so, so much. They learned, they grew, they experienced, they felt, they laughed, they matured. And most importantly, they are happy. And so am I :)
