Summer Traditions.


Summer has officially begun here at the Anderson house. We are already into the second week of June and Thursday is Alec's last day at school - the end of the preschool era for him! To celebrate summer's start, we brought out the poster board and made our annual Summer List.
We did this last year and it was such a fun project to do as well as to look over and cross things off as the summer went on. All three of us listed things we wanted to do this summer, some fun, some "to-do" items, and some just random-if-we-get-to-it stuff. You can see, the boy is very proud of the creation...

Because of the gigantic artwork (notice the little stick-figure family) we opted to put only some things on the actual poster board and keep a running list of everything else. So here it is, the official, ever-changing, and most likely will not all happen...
