Today my boys started their last week of school before Summer break, and I realized that I had better get my summer fun list together pronto. We won't be doing these in any particular order, but I hope to get to all of them. Here is what I have so far . . .
1. Indoor Picnic
2. Outdoor Picnic
3. Make Dinosaur fossils
4. Have a boy friendly tea party

30. Ivory Soap Explosion
I will add to this list as I think of, or find more things to do. I will also try to blog about what we are doing and share the fun! Here is hoping for a fabulous and fun Summer!
