It always takes me a few days to unwind from the school year!
On the first day of Summer Break, I always have some summer "presents" for my kids on the breakfast table.
These are little gifts that I give them to celebrate that it is summer.
And, it is slightly based on working mom guilt. Ha!
I got them some Super Soakers, Sand Toys, Bubbles, Dive Sticks & a Basketball hoop for the pool.
One of my favorite things to do at the start of each Summer is make a Summer List with the girls.
They love making it also!
They are in charge of the Summer List. I don't give them any suggestions, it is all their ideas.
They love coming up with ideas & decorating the poster after I write out the list.
I like making a Summer List because it helps with ideas for what they want to do in the summer.
Our summer is pretty un-scheduled for the most part (besides Swim Team 3x a week & 2 camps the girls attend), so doing a Summer List helps me (and them) be intentional about what we do during the summer.
Do you have a summer list?
What are looking forward to doing this summer?
