Summer Plans

For the past few years, as summer approaches, I start to make lists of all the fun and exciting things I want to do with the kids.  Some are family activities, many are things we'll squeeze in while Daddy's working, but the time flies by far too fast not to take advantage of all the fun things that don't normally fit into the schedule.  With the extra time and lazy days provided by summer, I want to take advantage of that extra fun time with the kids.

So here are the ideas on my list so far.  Many we'll do on the spur of the moment, and others we'll turn into day trips and combine with picnic lunches or other adventures for a full day of fun.

Others will be things that will benefit the whole family, but that will teach the kids important skills while allowing us to work together:

  • picking and freezing blueberries
  • husking and freezing corn
  • canning tomatoes (well, I want to do this - their involvement may be limited this year!)
What's on your summer fun list?
