How is everyone coming along on their Summer Fun lists? Are you getting lots accomplished? We still have a little over a week to mark off some more but we have done pretty good this year. Of course, next week will be filled with back to school registration and shopping for clothes and supplies. While I dread it as a parent because of the insane amount of money that gets spent, I remember how I LIVED for back to school shopping. Getting all of those new outfits and fresh school supplies. There wasn’t much that made me happier back then. To be honest, I still get a high for picking up some fresh “school supplies” for myself. Anyway, I am trying to keep that excitement in mind for our shopping trips next week! Wish me luck!
Back to the summer fun list… being that we only have a week left I am having to prioritize the list. You know… narrow it down only to the stuff that I know or think we can get marked off before school starts. So here is what we have left to do… (I will be back to mark them off as we get them done).
- family game night
- make your own pizza night
- go to the lake
- family donut morning
- family ping pong/pool competition
- back to school clothes shopping
- back to school supply shopping
I am really hoping that we can get these marked off. Did you sign up for the summer of free bowling for the kids? We did. And I bought the family pass for Eric and I to join them. We have gone once. I had this grand idea that we would go quite a bit. This summer has just gone by so fast.
The kids invited some good friends over to swim this week. We haven’t even had time to get in the pool much this summer. Between busy schedules, trips, cool days and rain… there just hasn’t been a whole lot of time. They sure do enjoy it though.
Brooks is one of Noah’s best friends. They have so much fun when they are together or playing on xBox. I am so thankful that they have become such good friends.
This is Brooks’ little brother, Logan, who happens to be good friends with Kendall.
Another fun summer day documented and enjoyed by all. :-)
