Summer Survival and PCS Tips Jun. 2014 - Page 3

Here We Go Again!

It's that time again: summer vacation and PCS-season. Every year it comes, and every year, after just making it through, we vow to do it better next year. To enjoy our children more, to work in some educational fun, to take a break from therapy and let our children be children: whatever it is we wish we'd done differently, we all believe we'll do it differently the next time around. Here are some ideas to do just that.

Compounding the summer madness, chances are if you have PCS orders you'll be moving sometime between May and September. We included our favorite pack-out tips, including the ones we didn't know during our last PCS!

Friends, as parents, we have a limited number of magical summers to share with our children. This year has the potential to be one for the record books, filled with memories and moments to savor forever. Whether on the road to your new duty station, or just soakin' up the rays, make time to enjoy your family. And, yes, I will be taking my own advice.

For those who will PCS, there is laughter to be found down that road, too. "It's not the destination; it's the journey," right? May the summer breeze blow gently and guide you where you need to be safely.
