As summer winds down, the Baart family is gearing up for one last hurrah. Our vacations usually consist of trips to our second home in British Columbia, but the boys are reaching the age where family holidays are memorable and shaping, and we think it's important to spend time with just the four of us.

Since we're tightening our belts with the collective whole of middle class America, it's a mini stay-cation for us this year! I couldn't be more excited. We're headed to the Omaha Zoo, the Children's Museum, a water park, some hiking, and (a Baart family first) a little letterboxing! I'm so giddy I feel like a kid again. Isn't that the point?

Any-hoo, it'll be a quiet week. Blessings to you as you soak in the last couple of weeks before school starts and schedules once again reign supreme. How are you spending the waning days of summer?

PS - See you back here on Saturday for my first installment of The Grapevine! You're gonna love this woman almost as much as you'll love her books. ;)


  1. Have a great stay-cation, Nicole! I don't have any waning days of summer break left. I start back tomorrow.

  2. Have a great time away, Nicole. I felt nudged by God to check out your blog this morning. So glad I did. I'll stay tuned for good reading ideas-desperate for them, actually. my blog rests at Oh, and the last 2 weeks of summer for me involve sorting through kids clothes to see what still fits. :)

  3. Have fun! I still have one more week before classes start back. I'm actually looking forward to getting back to campus, and definitely looking forward to moving into my apartment. Woo-hoo! :D

    God Bless,
    Lauren :)

  4. Thanks for the well wishes! We're having a wonderful time... This is the first time I've been online all week. Loving it... ;)
