Stars and Stripes Reduced

Can you believe that it’s almost the end of July?  Summer is zipping by like it always does but the good news is – it’s not over yet!  There’s still time to squeeze in that family trip you’ve been wanting to take or finally have the cookout you’ve been trying to schedule all summer. The days are still long, allowing plenty of time to enjoy summer pleasures.  The nights may soon start to get cooler, but that’s all the better for making the perfect s’mores over a late-summer bonfire.

The kids will soon be back in school and summer will once again become a pleasant memory, but not today.  Today, there’s still plenty of summer fun to be had, whether it’s spending time with your kids at the pool or taking a solitary evening walk around the block.  Maybe you’ll enjoy an ice cream cone on a hot day (July is National Ice Cream Month, after all) or stay up late to gaze at the stars.  Whatever you and your family do,  I hope you make the most of every lazy, crazy, fleeting day of summer.  Enjoy!
