104 Days of Summer Vacation - ending...

Do you remember this post about what the boys wanted to DO this summer? Well here is out list of the things they chose as well as listings of the things life handed us.

1. Camping under the Stars - we got close on this one. We stayed out watching the Persieds meteor shower until 3 am.

2. Family Game night (twice a week) - since all our board games are in storage, this one has been reduced to a couple times a month...
3. Learn to make cups (that one is G's - that boy is a sucker for a field trip!) - We didn't find anywhere that manufacture cups, BUT I did know how to make one of paper. Thank you useless origami studies!
4. Swim -  At friends' pools, the Hartselle pool and we FINALLY have our pool in and we have been using it like crazy!

5. Hang out in a Hot Tub - Thank you Cathy for this one!

These are the things we didn't get to this summer, but we have plans to get to a few of them yet;
Build a clubhouse
Go to Spring Park
Have an airsoft/paintball War
Water gun fight
*Visit a Waterpark
Build a robot
Meet the Mythbusters (that may have to be a long term goal - LOL)
Make a card tower
Bowling  - in September
*Buy Ice Cream from an Ice Cream Truck

* maybe next year...

One of the nice things about life is that sometimes awesome things happen that you never planned like;

I can't believe that the summer is almost over. We started school a couple of weeks ago. So far they are doing pretty well. It's too hot out to want to be gone too much so I am using this time to keep them focused on math, grammar and LOTS of reading. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Autumn, but I'm sure sad to see this summer go...
