“Summer” has officially arrived in our household. Yesterday was the last day of school for the girls. Because this is the first summer that I do not have to work since they were born, I decided not sign them up for summer camp. I am craving the long summer days that I remember from my childhood and think it would be good for them to experience the same feeling.
We decided to launch our time together by creating a list of summer “must-dos” (inspired by the book, Oliver’s Must-Do List, by Susan Taylor Brown).
The girls dictated their ideas to me and I wrote them down on a piece of list paper (see below for link to template).
This is what they came up with…
Since making the list together, the girls make sure to add on any new ideas they come up with. I also plan to refer them back to our “must-do list” any time the dreaded word “bored” comes up!
