I’ve got a sneaky confession.

I’m not one of those parents that secretly breathes a sigh of relief when September comes around. I love summer. I love long days that we can fill with our own adventures, finding new places, trying new things.

This summer has been just what a summer should be – long, hot, and filled with adventure. Although having to carry a rifle case into a US airport because my daughter’s toy ninja sticks don’t fit in a suitcase isn’t an adventure I’m in any hurry to repeat.

Ah well, at least we have some kick-ass memories to get us through the winter. Here’s hoping your summer was every bit as good.

Now, does anyone have any great tips on how the heck I motivate myself to do some work this month?
