2 1/2 weeks Left of Summer Break

acs_0342I can’t decide if that is a good thing or a bad thing that school starts in 2 1/2 weeks for three of my kids.  Part of me is so ready for more of a schedule and structure to our days and the other part is ready for time at the lake, backyard campfires, s’mores, swimming and sleeping past 5:30 a.m.  With just a few more weeks left, I have added to our summer bucket list to soak in these slower days:

  • playdates with friends
  • playing at the beach
  • a trip to the zoo
  • checking out our favorite splash park
  • hiking through local trails
  • ice cream date at one of our favorite local ice cream shops
  • Donuts at our local bakeryacs_0343
  • backyard campfire (and maybe even backyard tent camping?!)
  • fishing with Dad
  • Back to school shopping

What are some of your favorite things to do before school begins again?  Do you have a tradition you do with your kids the week before school begins?  Leave them in the comments below, I would love to hear them!
