Today we shut our pool down for the summer. We enjoyed many family moments in it this year with our children, grandchildren, other family members, and friends. It always feels that when we shut down the pool, that fall is close by. Also with fall, comes a sense of routine - since school has begun. We also had our annual South Vienna corn festival this weekend too. We always take our grandchildren to this event and continue to have many lasting memories.
I am so thankful that I have learned how to eat right, exercise regularly, and pay it forward as much as possible - to children, adults, family, and all whom come in contact with me.
Our youngest son Wes moved to Nashville, TN 3 weeks ago to pursue his music career. Chuck and I are officially empty nesters now. We are actually enjoying our freedom to do things that we had to put on the back burner when our children were home. We enjoy our time together, along with our time to ourselves.
My exercise is still daily and intense. I enjoy taking care of myself so much. It really helps, especially when life throws those curve balls from time to time. Eating right and exercising sure helps with keeping the stress level down. I highly encourage others to do the same.
