The End Of Summer ~ $50 Giveaway

And just like that, summer is over. It always happens the same way, at the beginning of May I panic about three months of no school. How will I fill the days of a busy preschooler for days and days on end? (And this year I added the challenge of a baby on top of that!) I stress and worry about how many days lie ahead.

Then summer begins and we get busy. Some weeks I am not even sure were the time goes, but we stay busy. Suddenly the end of summer approaches, and it’s time to start planning for back to school. I go into panic mode again, this time trying to squeeze in all of the fun things I had planned that we haven’t gotten to yet. And then it happens – school starts once again.

It’s not to say we can’t (or don’t) have fun once school starts, but this time every year I find myself looking back wistfully at those long summer days of just hanging out with my girls.

Summer officially began when we celebrated Memorial Day at the beach.

Popsicle Beach Sunset

In June, we hosted 44 of our closest friends for a summer kickoff water party.

We all ohhed and ahhed over K’s first ballet recital.

July found us back at the beach again for an entire week to celebrate the forth.

Wedding bells rang for my sister, and no one had more fun than my dancing queen!

We cooled off in August with trips to the splash park.

And finally it was time to head back to school.

Through it all there were a lot of Popsicles! (Notice I never made it in a picture… Ahhh the life of a mom. I promise, I ate more than my fair share of Fudgesicles – yum!) Don’t miss this great coupon for $1 off Yosicles!

Yes, summer is over here in our house. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t still hot hot hot outside. We will continue to cool off with Popsicles long into October, maybe even November. Oh how I love being a Floridian!

So a Popsicle cheers to the start of school and another wonderful year ahead, and may everyone have a great school year!

  11. OK…I will admit that this is a tad macabre, but I heard this as a kid back in the 1980s in grade school and still find it hilariously dark and twisted. Hopefully you will too and sorry if you don’t like it!
    Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
    It was dead.
    Yeah…I know…LOL

  12. Please note that there was no Yosicle coupons at the link provided. Maybe they were August coupons? Anyway, I claimed the entry because I didn’t have a chance to print the coupon when it was available and that isn’t my fault. I hope that is OK. If not, disregard my entry.

  13. Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side. HAHAHAHAHA

    Seriously…I don’t know any kid jokes. I don’t even know any adult jokes for that matter. If only I had some Popsicle sticks handy. 😉

  14. 100% not your fault! I just thought you should know and didn’t want you to think I was cheating! 😀

  15. Gerardo Zamora says:

    What do you call a rooster who wakes you up at the same time every morning?
