Definitely, one of the perks of being an educator is summers off! We've earned it! My favorite thing to do during the summer is to take the boys to the beach. This year, they can both finally swim in the waves and navigate the surf. We play for hours in the sand, eat picnic lunches, hunt for sea life in the tide pools, and boogie board until we're exhausted. With all of this, my favorite sight is two exhausted, sandy little boys asleep in the backseat on the way home. 

Matt recently bought a Volkswagen Eurovan with a pop-up tent. The boys think it's the coolest thing ever! Matt envisions stretching the summer fun into weekend camping trips to the beach! Looking forward to it!
