Summer Fun

At the beginning of the Summer, my kids and I sat down and made a list of a bunch of fun things we wanted to do.  We wrote it on the chalkboard doors in our eating area.

We have done pretty darn good with our list.  We have...


taken swim lessons,


had a taste test party (tasted 3 different kinds of lemon-lime soda to see if we could tell which brand was which.  We couldn't.  It was lots of fun!)


We went to the drive inn, where we saw Zookeeper and Cars 2.


We went to Jumpers Playhouse.


We went to Disney!


We've also done lots of stuff not on the list, like play with Legos,


CHORES!!  I am so mean, just look at his face!  We have a pretty good reward system for chores.  I'll share that in a later post.


We built awesome stuff with marshmallows and toothpicks.


We have almost finished our 72 hr kits.


And we've cooled off with sprinklers under the trampoline.

We only have a few more things to check off.  Hopefully we can finish in the next 2.5 weeks before school starts!!

I hope everyone is having a FUN summer!!

  2. Looks like you've had a ton of fun, hard to believe it's almost over. :( BTW, can't wait for your post on chores. I've been looking for good DIY chore charts along with reward system ideas.
