- Park (the one across town that we never go to, but the kids beg for)

- Visit the local water park
- Visit the local amusement park
- Attend an outdoor musical put on by the community theater
If I get creative and don't go overboard with the summer scavenger hunt, and if we cut out the outdoor musical (we went last year, and I'm not excited about this year's play), we might be able to do all of the rest. We'll see.
"Mom, what does 'we'll see' mean?"
"It means 'maybe'."
Bubba: "No, it means 'don't get your hopes up'."
And this summer is the year for the girls to complete their summer journal. I can't wait. We have read and re-read Bubba's. Now that the girls are more word savy, they have a great time reading what their Bubba wrote when he was their age.
We have 6 1/2 days of school left . . . counting today . . . which is half over. I can't wait for our summer adventures to start. I hope your summer is filled with fun days, blessed nights, and a couple of good books thrown in there just for balance. What are you planning-ish for summer?
