Being new in Atlanta, it’s an odd feeling having school starting so early. I mean c’mon, it’s August! We still have an entire month left of summer! I’m not ready to go back to school . I have so many of our usual fun summer activities yet to be done in our new town. EGAD! Excuse me while I breathe into a paper bag and try and come up with a plan to squeeze them all in on the remaining weekends!
Ok, I feel better now
after sharing my momentary panic-stricken reality moment from time flying by so fast I can barely stand it. Without further adieu, here are my top 5 favorite summer delights:
Typically a 4th of July thing, but since we missed them at that time, hopefully we can find some locally for the Labor Day holiday.
4. Back to school shopping
This is not just the shopaholic in me talking, though I have had lessons from the best. I really get nostalgic remembering all the shopping trips to find the perfect lunchbox, trapper keeper and first day of school outfit with my great Aunt Sophie. BTW…my Walton’s lunchbox in 3rd grade RULED!
5. A day at the beach
I love everything about it. My toes in the sand, comfy beach chair and a
People magazine good book, all make for a great day under the shade of a colorful beach umbrella. We won’t talk about the difference of the day I list above and a beach day reality with DH and the kids. Please let me have my moment.
I know you all have your own favorite summertime activities. Whether the events are deeply rooted in your own childhood memories or a new idea shared from a neighbor or friend. I would really like to hear what your favorites are. I would love to add more ideas to my own list and really pack in the fun for the last few weekends of the season. Before I know it, I’m sure they’ll be gone.
