It’s June here and school is out. The sun is out and the Texas Heat came with it. Every summer, I ask my children to give me a list of activities that they would love to do during the summer. I tell them to make them reasonable, exciting, not all electronic, creative and things that they actually want to do.
Since we’ve been doing this since they were toddlers, we have the routine down, but it’s been neat to get Noah into the mix and discover all the things that he loves and how those loves join those of Z and S. This year, I will be adding my own list to the mix.
We’ll check back in July to see how the adventure went.
Cheers to a good summer.
