Already two weeks into our summer break from school, I finally sat down with the children this afternoon to start The List of Summer Fun. The List is going to hang on the refrigerator, nagging me to be a Yes! mom throughout the summer. To have fun! To be intentional with this short, intense season.
I chimed in with a few things I’d like to do again… the county carnival, the rodeo, see a movie at the drive in theater. My suggestions were met with approving “oooh’s and ahhh’s,” but the real fun was recording what the kids came up with.
Make fun hairstyles. Play a computer game. Ride bikes around the park. Play bocce ball. Color pictures together.
They are brilliant, those children of mine. Capturing the simple things. The life things. Masters of The Finer Things. I hope to follow their lead this summer.
What Finer Things are you celebrating this week? Link up and let us know! Do you write a Summer Fun list? What are some of your “must do’s?”
