Every year around this time we start to get a little antsy. The season is changing, summer is ending, the air is getting a little cooler, and the kids are starting/going back to school.

It’s a lot to take in all at once, so we don’t really think about what to do as much.

I have put together a list of things to do that the entire family can enjoy doing together.

When we think of our little ones going off to school it can be a bittersweet feeling. We are so glad they are growing and learning but, we miss them being with us all the time.

To lessen the blow, pick a few, or all of the activities from the list and spend some time together as a family.

Our kids grow up so fast, it’s like we blink and they are 16, talking back and trying to spend as little time as a family as possible.

How do you spend time with your family? Do you have any special activities that you like to do each year?

Let me know in the comments 🙂
