This summer has just flown by, hasn't it? Some of my friends' kids have gone back to school this week, and others start in the next couple weeks. That means, hard as it is to believe, summer is dwindling fast. It's time to do everything you haven't had a chance to do yet, and quickly.

Here's my list:

Ice cream for dinner

Hiking at a nature center

Day camp week

Going to the beach for a day

Going to a U-pick farm

Ice pops on the back porch

Splashing in a pool

Staying up late watching the Olympics

Sidewalk chalk masterpieces

Movie marathon on a rainy afternoon

I'm sure my kids have some ideas too....my daughter has taken to inventing holidays and today came up with "Sugar Day" in which all we eat is sugary treats, all day long. Hmmmmm....maybe the last day of summer vacation?

What's on your list for the rest of the summer? And when do your kids go back?

Just about done with my list except for unpacking about 20 boxes still. I was so scared another fire was going to start i just left them packed incase we had to go again. But with the rain i should get them all unpacked and put the house back together.

We did the water park this week, which was one of the last things on my list. I think all we have left is a hike into this natural waterfall and swimming area.

My son goes back after Labor Day.
