This past week wrapped up my entire summer-break-with-my-kids. Sure, there are a few weeks of summer vacation left before the kids head back to school, but I’ll be gone for all but a handful of those days. The lazy days of summer (for my family) are coming to a close.

My mind has been on our summer – what we were able to do and what we didn’t quite fit in – and I loved Laura‘s reflections on her summer in her post on 5 Minutes for Faith this week.
