Summer Fun: The List

Can you believe summer ends in only eight short weeks?! Yep, that’s right. In eight week, it will be Labor Day, the traditional end of summer that typically corresponds with back-to-school week.

Since we’re half-way done, I thought I’d share our summer fun “to do” list. You can see by the items listed under “Accomplished” which things we’ve already done.

By the way, I can’t take credit for this idea. I stole it (and a few of the items) from two of my favorite blogs: Whatever and Flip Flop Follies. Check out these blogs; you’ll love them! Thanks for the inspiration, ladies!
