To Do List: Summer Edition

Today is the last of school for M Bug.  He will start the SECOND GRADE this fall.  WOW.  I saw Miss Zoot's list of 40 things to try to do this summer.  I shamelessly stole the list and made it my own.  What a fun idea.  Even if we do not get to these things, it was fun to think about what we might do!

Actually I do not care if we do not get to this list.  I will be happy for my kids to do what they did last night which was to play without adult interruption (we adults were too busy discussing decks and landscaping for like TWO HOURS!) at our neighbor's house on the trampoline.  Then they ran between the two houses, gates wide open, screaming and yelling still the sun went down. They were dirty and exhausted and happy at little sweet clams.  That is how summer should be!
