A Room With a Southern View

Thoughts on Life and Liberty from an Average Middle-Class Kentuckian

End of Summer

on July 20, 2011

With the start of school looming in fourteen days, and only two more weekends until we are back to the grind of early to bed, early to rise, which has never made me healthy, wealthy, or wise.  I am a stay-at-home-mom, so my two children and I are on our own while their Dad works all week.

The lazy days of summer are our chance to make our own plans for the day.  We decide when to arise, and when to go to bed.  Shall we go somewhere today?  Shall we stay home?  Shall we watch rental movies all day?  Shall we go fishing?  Shall we go swimming?  Shall we go bowling?  Our schedule is controlled only by our whims.

This year, gas prices, fiery temperatures, and reports of bedbugs turned our annual family holiday into a stay-cation.  Maybe we can squeeze in a day trip to the zoo before that first school bell rings.

What did your family do for fun this summer?  Did you stay-cation or go for a week?  Did you stay overnight or go out for the day?

Got any end of summer ideas? I’d love to hear them!
