Summer Bucket List 2012

Well summer is officially here!!!!  Landon has finished 3rd grade, Casen has finished 1st grade and Hayden has finished his first year of preschool!!!!!!  So now I"m busy planning our summer, and having tons of fun doing it!!!  

I have decided we will do a Summer Bucket List, I made an I'm bored jar (that has activities that need no help from me, just ideas that they can do on their own when they are bored), we are going to make a summer scrapbook of all the things we do (including lots of pics taken by the boys), participate in the library reading program and I"m having them keep journals all summer to keep up on writing and spelling.  I have finished the "I'm bored jar" aside from decorating it, when I finish it I'll post a pic.  Then today I'm going to get the stuff to make our Summer bucket List and when that's done I'll post a pic but here are my ideas for it :)
