Summer Fun List– Update 1

So I took our Summer Fun List and added a few things (yes that was sarcasm).  I know we wont complete all of the list but I wanted a long list of ideas.  Things we never get to during other parts of the year!  I am going to try and update the list every Wednesday with pictures of the things we have completed!



56. Have a fun “You finished Kindergarten Date”: we played putt putt with our friends and had ice cream for our You Finished Kindergarten Date!  I didn’t get any pictures while we were out and about. But here is Sammy’s I finished Kindergarten picture:
