Summer Ideas

In a proactive attempt to head off any "I'm bored" talk around this house during the summer, I came up with a list of ideas the boys can do and/or that we can do together as a family. The list hangs on the pantry door in the kitchen where they can look it over when they need some inspiration. I am happy to report that we have already done several things on the list and they seem to take pleasure in putting a check mark by the activities as we do them! I hope we get most of these marked as completed before the first school bell rings in August! Even if we don't get them all done, it should be fun trying!
