I am not a natural “list” person. But, there are times that I LOVE lists! Today was one of those days. The kids and I made a list of all the good and fun outings we’ve had this summer!
It is easy to get to the end of summer break from school and think you did nothing all summer. But, we actually did quite a bit!
We started the tradition several years ago of making a list of summer fun. I don’t know if the kids even realize that we do this every summer. But I do. It reassures me that the kids didn’t really spend the whole summer watching tv or on their phones! More than that, it helps remind them that they had good summer too . . by looking at the good stuff! We focus on the good and the not-so-good just kind of fades in to the background . . that is a good way to look at life!
Tonight I am thankful for a good summer with the kiddos! We aren’t done yet 🙂 School won’t stop our fun! But at least for now, we’ve got a good list with some good summer fun! And yes, some of the summer fun is just being lazy too 🙂 I know, I know 🙂
P.S. Here is the dinosaur we found at the zoo this summer!
