Summer Update

I don’t know about you but Fourth of July is always the pinnacle of summer for me. The festivities, the family time, and the excuse to splurge on some of my favorite indulgences {wink}. I just can’t believe that it’s already behind us, meaning that summer as we know it is halfway done.

What have you all been up to? Hopefully you’ve been enjoying yourselves so far! Here’s a summer update from the Yelton clan …

This weekend baseball and lacrosse will wrap up for our boys. Ty’s last 13U baseball game is scheduled in Indianapolis, and Trent’s 11U lacrosse season will come to a close in Chicago. When we get home there will be no dull moments. Trent will head to Spring Hill camp next week and Ty will be home prepping for 2018 Baseball Tryouts! These kids sure are dedicated, and seeing them happy makes all of the running around worth it.

Once the boys wrap up their commitments, we’re still planning to hit the road as a family. We have a trip to Pittsburgh planned in early August, we’ll make our way to “Camp Yelton” to enjoy water and sunshine, and closer to home we hope to hit a couple of concerts. After that it’s time to hit the books with summer assignments! School will be here before we know it.

Outside of all of our activities, I also set some pretty hefty personal goals this summer. First and foremost I wanted to get our house organized! No more clutter. No more toys we don’t use. No more clothes we don’t wear … all of it must go! Well, I’m happy to report that I’m 50% done and our donation bags are ready to be dropped off. Even getting rid of this first load is going to be such a relief.

Along with getting the house cleaned, I also wanted to clean up my diet a bit and get rid of a few unwanted pounds. Well … thanks to the Advocare 24 day challenge, I’m happy to report that I’m five pounds down! Setting goals are pretty easy, though accomplishing them is a bit of a different story. I’m just so glad to see progress and my hope for the rest of the summer is that I can stay on track!

Now that I write it all down, maybe we have accomplished a lot so far! And, we still have half of the summer left. Let’s get it!
