Here we are in the full swing of summer vacation. Day #3 to be exact. I almost thought we wouldn't make it past day #2, but somehow we all survived and lived to tell the tale. I think it was a mixture of let down from the weekend and unrealistic expectations on my part. I want this summer to be magical for my children, but there are realities of budget, time and just plain old real life that sometimes get in the way.
I decided to take a page from Eighteen25 and make a list of all the fun things I'd like to do with the kids this summer. I'm hoping having them in a prominent place will help me stay accountable for actually doing them.
In fact- we have a couple things done already: the carnival, parade and today: the hike. We just walked the back way from the school up and over the hill. Simple, close- done!
Simple really is better.
Maybe we really can get this list done.
