Summer Finale & Free eBook [Nurture Photography]

We are nearing the end of summer, a lot of children are back at school already or will start back soon. Mikey still has just under a month left before he begins Kindergarten at a new school, something he’s very excited about but I’m still a little nervous for him.

The summer so far has been slow and easy. We haven’t done a lot of the things I had originally intended to do, but that has been ok. We’ve just been taking each days as it comes: Spending time at the park or the playground, drawing with chalk on the sidewalk, riding his scooter, visiting the library. We’ve still managed to always have something to record in our Summer Journals. We still have some weeks left of summer, perhaps we can fit in a few more activities and fun outings before Mikey is in school for a full day, every day.


I’d like to thank my amazing co-host, Kristi, for all of her work on the challenge with me behind the scenes. I’ve put together a list for you of all of the tutorials we have shared during the challenge.

  1. oh how can summer be almost over? I’m so sad because I feel like we have not accomplished anything either. There rain and clouds have dampened our summer activities for sure! I think my children only swam twice! I always look forward to these challenges though! If you and KRisti are ever looking for another co-host – I’d love to be included!
