We slept under the stars last weekend. Lying in the darkness, listening to the crickets, my mind passed over each of my sleeping children remembering our summer together and thinking forward to what is coming when school, soccer, and other fall activities start this week. Come tomorrow morning, we hit the ground running and won’t stop until the time comes to give thanks we have so many opportunities that keep us busy.
As is typical of the end of anything, I think of what I loved, what I wish we could have done, and what should go on my list for the next summer. One thing about having all my children in public school is there is far less traveling during the school year, although it still can be done!
I love experiencing new places and making new memories with my family. But travel often has an environmental impact. Of course there are lots of ways we can minimize this whether we fly, drive, stay in hotels, camp, or anything else.
