We’ve been busy thinking of the things we want to do this summer. You, too?
My mama was a teacher, so we had long summers off together. All through the year, we would file away ideas for activities we wanted to do during summer break. Our list would usually include things like visiting a new store we were curious about, going to the zoo, and lots and lots of trips to my grandparent’s house.
Some activities were not even planned, like the summer we went to about a hundred McDonald’s drive throughs to get a complete set of Bambi figurines. Very cute.
And Some activities were entirely my mom’s idea, like the summer she decided we needed to know we were capable of walking six miles into the closest town and back. My sister and I assured her that we did not need to actually experience this to know that we could. She insisted we did. Believe me, my sister and I will never forget that it is entirely possible to walk six miles to get a popsicle.
My boys and I have a few ideas of our own this summer. One son wants to make a homemade pizza, I want to paint the house a little, and we’re all anticipating our big vacation. More than anything, though, I’m looking forward to all the extra time I’ll get to spend with my kiddos. It’s a special time of year, and I can’t wait to soak up every minute of it.
What are your plans for the summer? Are you going to try anything new? Tell us about it!
You are so Cute, Smart and Organized,
