#DOSUMMERBIG# CHALLENGE ~ Week 2
We are loving our wonderful summer weather here in North Idaho! It has been unseasonably warm. Usually, I hide from the heat and hole up in our apartment. This summer I have been on a mission to make this the most memorable summer ever! I have realized how short my time with my kids is. I blinked and my first born is in driver’s ed and turning 15 this summer. For so many summers, I would say no to so many things simply because it was too hot, too messy, too time consuming, but not this summer. I want my kids to get to the end of this summer and say it was the best summer ever! That is how the DO SUMMER BIG CHALLENGE was born. I want to encourage all you mamas out there to get out into the great outdoors that God created for us to enjoy! Let’s DO SUMMER BIG!
Week one’s challenge was to TAKE A HIKE, Mama! I would love to see pics or comments telling me where you went! I want to hear about your adventure’s! On our hike we got a little lost…..a map would have been good :).
This week’s challenge may not seem to be a challenge for you, but for me it was a huge baby step. Take the kids to the beach. We have a beach on the river that runs through our city about 2 miles away from our home. My 4 youngest have NEVER been to the beach! But the tide is turning! We have been to the beach already more in a week than they have every summer the last 12 years. Sad, but true.
I would love to hear your thoughts. Do you take your kids to the beach regularly or is it a special occasion. Or like me was it too much work? This summer, I plan on hitting multiple different beaches! Some of my fondest memories as a child were going to the beach with my cousins and my mom making sub sandwiches for us with lots of snacks! Are you making those kind of memories for your kids? I AM THIS SUMMER!
