I have no idea how this happened, but suddenly, we’re in the last days of Summer 2012.
As you can tell by my lack of blogging, we’ve been having a lot of fun. The kids are at great ages to do some local traveling, exploring in the city and having fun at home and I’ve tried my hardest to stay off of my beloved laptop as much as possible. It’s been good.
Here’s what’s still on our to-do lists before September 5th rears its ugly head…
Go to Whidbey Island, Ride the Ducks, ride the SLUT downtown to meet Josh for dinner after work, a family day at the zoo, evenings playing with neighbors in the backyard, eat every last strawberry before the birds get to them, go to Menchie’s 18 more times, find out who Janie’s teacher is, visit the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, drive in movie theater night, movie marathon night at home.
School supply shopping and school clothes shopping, clean out and organize that damn hall closet once and for all (which includes a trip to Ikea), clean out and scrub the insides of the kitchen cupboards, set up school day details including childcare, schedules and such, get a home office set up downstairs, an epic back-to-school Costco trip to stock the pantry and supply closets, weed the front yard for the millionth time, sort through the huge stack of papers in our entry from the past year, clean out and organize all the toys in the house that have been misplaced and destroyed all summer long.
What’s on your fun list and your must-do list for the last few days of summer vacation?
