    we’re going to try and do some camping. Whether it’s in the backyard or away at a campground -we want to do the outdoors.

    we’re going to enjoy one another -gardening together, canning together, baking together, painting together, exploring together, and learning together.

    I sat down and made a poster that said “Activities We Want To Do.” Then I listed everything I could think of that would be fun for summer. Then I picked the girls’ brains and added their ideas. We can also add more items as they come up. We hung this poster in the hall where we can see it often. No excuse to be bored this summer!

    Taking Astrid to play with Abby. July is kind of packed for us, but expect some phone calls in August. The lake?

    Sigh. Sounds wonderful. Can I run away and come live with you this summer?

    Wow! Thanks for the list :) I’m all over those chalk boards–brilliant! How very cool that you have a wall already in place, just begging for some chalkboard paint.

    Oh–by the way, those splat balls are also super fun to paint with. You know, because you need more on your list ;)
