“Spring being a tough act to follow, God created June” – Al Bernstein


Water! Water! Water! The hot summer days are filled with water in every shape and form. Water balloons thrown in the backyard, the sprinklers spraying the kids as they dash through and the backyard pool filled to the brim.

Summer is by far one of the kids’ favorite seasons. The evenings are spent outside in the yard playing and laughing. With the days getting longer the bedtime gets later and later to squeeze in all we can in the lasting daylight. Summer evenings are one of our favorite times for our family. These extra minutes each day provide us the time to build lasting memories for our children giving them the opportunities to heal from their past.

“Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.” – Jenny Han
