Even before our oldest was in school I have loved making a Summer Fun List! We don't always have vacations or do expensive things with our family. But when you make a list full of fun ideas it makes summer that much more fun! I love finding joy in doing little things. And when you look back over your summer your kids are so excited to see all the fun things they did. And just like Phineas and Ferb our goal is to have the best summer ever!!! Plus when my kids can help give ideas everyone wins!

I love giving the boys down time and working on project myself. Summers are so great. Staying up late listening to books or swimming with friends. You can sleep in or get up early for an adventure. It's a perfect time to read, create, play, and do nothing.
Now that I have decided what to do it's time to start putting things on the calendar...
