There are a coupe of weeks left to enjoy family reunions, vacations, and road trips. The lazy days of summer are winding down as you check off the activities and places to go… or count the days left of not having homework, school activities and just relaxing. Then somehow there is a whirlwind of activity; new clothes, new teachers, new friends, the wonderment of the new school year and at the end of the month, you look back wondering how you got it all done. Somehow you do and look forward to the new adventures that await you. 

Enjoy the best of both worlds and have a great August!
