Can it be? Summer is winding down! Mid-August means shopping for school clothes and supplies.
But there are still plenty of families who will be taking trips…whether by car, plane, train or bus.
I’m guest posting on Sarah Forrest’s ‘Easy Read System’ blog with some great travel tips for parents.
I hope you’ll stop, read and share:
At the end of September (if all goes smoothly), my husband and I will be grabbing a flight to New Hampshire to start a new adventure…sharing a house with our daughter and grandson! For the past few weeks, I’ve been going through cabinets, closets and drawers, trying to weed out what we don’t need to take with us. When the moving company estimator came, he couldn’t believe how many books we had! No surprise there, I guess.

Yay for new adventures!!!
I think it is the stuff that keeps us young.:)
I’m passing this on to my friends with wee ones. 😉
Thanks, Dawn.:) I’ve been absent from blogging and commenting…moving is for the young of body…not young at heart.:) It’s hard to believe we’ve amassed so much STUFF in the 16 years we’ve lived in Colorado. I guess I could just put EVERYTHING in boxes…but I’m trying to do as much weeding as I can. Our target move date is September 25…do you think I’ll get it all done? 🙂
I don’t think there are many things you can’t do Vivian! Weeding is important, letting go when you can. But don’t rush to weed. You may regret some of it later. Put things in storage, and decide later, when you’re settled and your emotions aren’t high. I don’t know all the details, but that’s a big move! But I know you can do whatever YOU set your mind to. No doubt. 😉
I had around 10-15 boxes of books. 😉 My Mom & Dad packed around 3-5 to put on the family book shelf. 😉
Books are necessary for life…I agree.:) I’ve already got 10 boxes of books packed…and still have 7 large bookcases to do.:) 🙂
