Smarter Mom: Last-Minute Summer To-Do List

Posted by   + Show Post

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 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?

My kids go back the 28th. If we ever get our car fixed I plan on taking another day trip to the beach, and our last shindig is our sons bday party on the 18th. Other then that, im ready for fall to get here.
