Well, it’s happened! Sophie is no longer a kindergartner. It’s hard to believe she’ll be a 1st grader in the fall. But before I start crying about how she’s growing up, I’m going to enjoy the next few months of SUMMER!
I feel like shouting from the rooftops a la Olaf in Frozen … It’s summer! Sleeping in, leisurely days, fun activities, outdoors, camps … so much to look forward to this summer! We just posted our Summer 2014 List (sorry it’s hard to read). Here’s a look at what we have planned.
A few notes on things we’re doing:
- Summer Journal – We bought a journal from Michael’s Arts and Crafts in which Sophie is writing down everything we do each day.
- Summer Reading Program/Chapter Books – We just started Beezus and Ramona; it’s so fun sharing these childhood favorites with Sophie. If you’re not in San Diego, check your local library for their summer reading program. Barnes & Noble and Potterybarn Kids also offers reading programs.
- Owl Drawings – I got this idea from Meg at Whatever. I’m not super artsy, but I’m willing to give this a try.
If you’re local – or planning to visit San Diego – you have to check out this list of 25 free (or nearly free) things to do this summer. There are so many great ideas.
I love that we do the summer list each year. It helps when we don’t have a formal activity planned for the day. I can’t believe this is our fifth summer doing this!
Do you make a summer bucket list? What do you have planned while school is out?
