Enjoying the Summer with our kids...

This is a post we have been contemplating about for the past few weeks. 

I absolutely LOVE summertime.  I love the long days, warm weather and the fact that my kids are home with me all day.  I love having no real schedule to adhere to and deciding each day what fun things we will do that day. 

This upcoming school year my oldest will enter the 1st grade.  This means he will be gone all day long.  While I love watching my kids grow, I am also so sad that my boy will be at school for most of the day.  I truly miss those days when I had all my kids home with me all day.  And this upcoming year is just the beginning of having my kids gone all day at school.  So this summer in particular I am really wanting to enjoy my kids. 

With that being said we have decided that for the summer, {Junk in their Trunk} will post only occasionally, instead of the normal 5x a week like we have been doing for the past year.  Instead of worrying about what to post the next day, we want to be able to enjoy our time with our children. 
Now this doesn't mean we are disappearing forever.  We will still host our weekly Link Up Parties.  We will also still post throughout the summer.  It just won't be a scheduled thing everyday anymore.  It might be once a week or a few times a week.  It just depends. 

We again want to thank you all for all your wonderful support throughout the last year.  We have loved our readers and have loved how supportive you guys have been to us.

Enjoy your summer! My oldest is entering first grade in the fall, too, and for our first summer vacation we made a family fun plan together (I posted about it last week on Wayward Girls' Crafts). Unfortunately, we've been sick all summer so we haven't been able to carry out a lot of our plans. Hope you guys are having more fun than we are!
