Welcome summer! School is officially out, and summer is officially in!!!! I am a list person. Post-it notes with lists on them are my friends. I have been working on some summer lists. Here are some things we have planned. . .
1. Read lots of books!
2. Make lots of lemonade
3. Eat lots of popsicles and ice cream (DQ visits are a must)
4. Star gaze
5. Stay up late (occasionally)
6. Sleep in late (often)
7. Have picnic lunches
8. Go to the park lots
9. Have the kids organize their rooms (which you know they are soooo excited about--not)
10. Count box tops (I collect these for the school, and I have thousands that need to be counted and sorted, so I am going to put the 4 extra bodies to work counting this summer)
11. Make birthday cards (I like to have a stash of homemade birthday cards ready, and my stash is low, and my kids make great cards!)
12. Scrapbook my kids' school year
13. Cook with my kids, try some new recipes
14. Count my blessings each day and enjoy the summer with my kids!!!! Realize the amazing blessing it is to have them and to be able to have this time with them because you know sometimes when they are fighting and screaming I forget that. . .
and of course there are lots more things to do, but we are only one day into this, so we are just getting started! Let the fun begin!
