Manner Monday®: Family Vacation

As seen on:
by Carey Sue Vega in Family, Manner Monday

Hello Friends,

The Vega family is enjoying a late summer family vacation.  After 3 broken bones (two for our son and one for my husband), we are excited to get away for a little R&R before school starts.  We loaded up with my mother-in-law and headed to Colorado Springs to stay with my sister-in-law and her family.  So far, we have a streak going for three days straight at Garden of The Gods (AMAZing place!) … rain is in the forecast for the next two days so we’ll see if we’re able to maintain our streak.

We’re enjoying lots of bouldering, rock climbing, hiking, and geocaching.

While we’re on vacation, I thought I would share links to some of my most popular previous blog posts:

Do you have a ‘manner’ or question you would like to see covered next week in Manner Monday?  Feel free to send me your thoughts, I would love to hear from you.

My goal is to help my students (both youth and adults) to feel more comfortable and confident in the social and professional skills; do you know someone who would enjoy this post?  If so, please share it and encourage them to sign up to receive Manner Monday?  I would appreciate it!  And if you’re new to Manner Monday, I’d love for you to take a minute to learn more about why I started it. You can click here to read my very first post that tells all about it.

Thanks for reading!
Carey Sue
