I live for this time of year, seeing the kids splash in the pool, backyard BBQ’s, bike rides, summer novels, smoothies & fresh strawberries from the garden.  It goes by quickly so I try not to plan too much, but enjoy with quality, fun days…

Before school was out I made a list of some favorite summertime activities.  I was starting to feel anxious, thinking about juggling work & home throughout the summer, wanting to be there for my kids without neglecting my job/clients.  So far it has been a nice balance.  We’ve had the summer slow time at work, but just enough to enjoy some professional time mixed in with mommy time, I think the kids like it too. 

So, if we ever get bored, here's my list of summer activities...

  • Good books / Summer reading for the kids  I'm reading "The Last Lecture"- it's a quick read yet inspiring; the girls book of choice is "The Chronicles of Narnia"  so much for picture books anymore, I read a chapter a night, they love it, they still read picture books on their own.
  • Arts & Crafts for the girls
  • Walk & play w/ Bruno
  • Gym
  • Miniature golf
  • Picnics / BBQ’s
  • Swimming
  • Gymnastics class for the girls
  • Karate for the boys
  • Drive up the canyons
  • Play dates, a lot of these!
  • Sports
  • Service projects, already done a few of these :)
  • Scouts- boys
  • Saxon Math- younger kids
  • Photo shoots
  • Puppy School
  • Thanksgiving Point
  • Classic Skating
  • Biking
  • Zoo
  • Discovery Gateway Children's Museum
  • Liberty Park
  • Tracy Aviary

Summer, please stay for awhile.
