Hi Friends! I drove to New Hampshire and back yesterday. My sister and I took the kids to Santa’s Village. Actually I did not drive, My Brother-in-Law did which made it even better LOL! This was a rather impromptu trip. We had planned going a month ago but on the day we could go there were freak tornado touching down and lightning storms and it was a 4 hour drive so we did not want to get there and have it be closed or get swept into OZ by a tornado! Yesterday was one of those days where you go from having the heat on in your car, to the AC and heat again in one day. That is how I know summer is ending. I am feeling a bit sad to see this summer go. Usually I am looking forward to the crisp days of fall and having the days free to work on my projects while the kids are in school but this year I am feeling a bit sad about it. I also wonder if the kids will even be interested in going to Santa’s Village or Storyland next year (sniff, sniff.) Oh well, all we can do is try to enjoy every moment, right? We have perfect beach weather today so I am taking them to the lake for one last hurrah before school starts. I think one of the things that has given me the end-of-summer-bummer feeling is screens. If we are home the kids want to play video games. We set a time limit on all screens but I feel that they would have a screen in their face all day if we let them. The games are designed to keep players on the websites/app/devices longer and you know what. Our favorite websites do the same thing. That gave me the idea for this weeks Vlog: Is Pintrest bad for you:
What do you think? I know I can get sucked into a void when I am online. I need limits as much as my children do so I can use the computer as a tool and not the other way around. Let me know what you think in the comments! Happy crafting!
