Our June vacation extended into most of July. We have been on vacation more weeks that Seth has been out of school for summer break. Our lives are one big vacation. LOL
Seth starts back to school in a few days as I am doing this blog. It will be hard to see him go back to school. We spent some great quality time together this summer. It helped having him without his Xbox for almost 6 weeks. Seth did get some more driving practice this month in Minnesota and back home here in Arizona. He is doing better by the day but still has some brain farts now and then. He also got to go on a 5 day Fishing and Camping trip up North with his Girlfriend and her family. He had a blast and created some great memories for life.
Darlene had some good R and R but now back to the grind. It looks like she may be working 7 days a week until she goes back to Minnesota sometime. Possibly in December. We are starting our Diets to lose some of the Vacation weight we gained this year. We are just on week one of being back on it so now big progress to shout about.
Logan is still doing school and Wal-Mart at night. He is starting to work out a little for the Navy. We have gone on a couple of walks together in the last week. He is trying to watch what he eats and is weighing himself about 6 times a day. Crazy boy. We will be sad when he ships out next year to boot camp.
We continue to teach the boys lessons about personal finance and investing. We are far from perfect ourselves and make plenty of mistakes also or spend too much money on wasteful items. But Darlene and myself try to stay with in our budget and keep reviewing our actuals and future projections monthly.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”. By Albert Einstein. I would also say the definition of insanity is believing you can live a financial responsible life without tracking how you are doing, having a budget and goals. I like following others who track their finances to compare our also. I enjoy helping people with their finances and goals.
We want to give our boys the best chance to have their money last them thru their retirement years and have them reach their Financial Freedom goals. They need to live somewhat with a frugal mindset and spend less than they make so they can Invest towards their Financial Freedom goals.
Here are some positive quotes I like;
“Get your Money to Work for You… As hard as You Work for it.” By Napoleon Hill
