Summer is here! Not officially, but in my home, summer starts as soon as my son is out of school for the year. Without question, summer is my favorite time of the year. Not only is the weather absolutely beautiful, but I get to enjoy it with my son.
We have many summer traditions. First, is the last day of school celebration dinner. Each year, we go out to celebrate the completion of another school year. It’s hard to believe that in just a few short years, that tradition will come to an end.
Our second tradition, is spending a day in the mountains, once every other week. We kick off our shoes and play in the gentle streams. From there, we head up the mountain a little further to hike on various trails. Then, we relax at a lake, any lake we run into. Finally, we end the day with an ice cream; an ice cream for him. That’s his reward for putting up with all the driving.
He and I are very different in that respect. I love road trips, whereas for him, that’s almost as boring as sitting in an elevator. Speaking of road trips, that’s our third tradition. We have some exciting trips planned this summer. One of which has been a dream trip for years, for my mother and I. That I’ll discuss later, as the time gets closer.
For now, the mountains are calling us. So, without further ado, let the summer games begin!
What are some of your summer traditions?
