How has your summer been so far? Have you been on a vacation yet or to any exciting festivals this summer?
We don’t have a vacation planned for this summer, but we do plan to explore new (to us) places in Detroit and (hopefully) up north.
Travis has been busy with full-time summer classes at the community college. This past May marked one year of college for Travis!
I’ve been busy with creative projects and freelance work. I also just recently started homeschooling the kids again. We took a few weeks off for the summer and now we’re back to our school routine. I’ll have to write a blog post sometime about how we enjoy year-round homeschooling.
As for the teens, Elijah is working more hours at his part-time job and he’s also been connecting with a recruiter in hopes of joining the Marine Corps. (That’s a story for another day.) While Michala is working fewer hours at her job to focus on summer school studies.
So things are a little busier this summer than it was for us last year. Not complaining about having paid work! And definitely not complaining about Travis having an opportunity to get his college degree.
It’s all been such a wonderful blessing, especially after experience two hard years of unemployment. Just saying how busy this summer has been!
Thankfully, Travis and I are able to create flexible schedules to do all the things and keep balance with the family. We synced our Google calendars so we can keep up with everyone’s schedule and it has been a lifesaver! We even include fun events we’re interested in attending or activities we’d like to do together.
Speaking of summer fun, I thought I’d share a few photos of how our summer has been so far. Let me know how you’ve been doing this summer, too! Xoxo
