Woo Hoo! Summer vacation is finally here for Rudy. Yesterday was Rudy’s last day of the “Extended School Year” program AND his last day of therapy for a few weeks which means today is his first official unscheduled summer day! It also coincides with Max and Olivia’s return from camp which is very exciting for all of us…they’ve been missed a ton this week! 😉
Although Rudy likes school and enjoys his full, active days, it’s good for us to take this break from everything every year (I even try to limit the number of dr. appts scheduled this month). Taking August off from Rudy’s regular schedule is something that has evolved over the years – part of pacing ourselves for the marathon – and it has served us well. Rudy heads back refreshed (me too) and eager to start the school year again. We’ll resume his weekly OT/PT schedule when school starts on August 23rd.
July has included a couple of big events that have been concerning and distracting…making it hard to focus on the daily “to dos” and filling our minds…but it has also been filled with a variety of special occasions and visits with friends filling our hearts so I guess it all evens out in the end. 😉
Here’s a pictorial review:
Summer often brings friends to town on their summer vacations and more time to spend with local friends. There will be more to come before the end of summer but here’s a look at some of our fun with friends so far this month!!!
And with that, we say goodbye to the 2016/2017 school year and say hello to Summer 2017… “HELLO SUMMER”!
