Summer Bucket List 2013

    The one thing I do not want to hear this summer is “ I am bored!” but I know at some point I will. To help me hear it a little less I came up with a summer bucket list. We probably will not be able to do all of these since Kain will have marching band practice and Noah has football practice but we are going to try. Most of these are free or VERY cheap. I need cheap with 3 kids.  Do you have any ideas I could add?

sounds pretty fun to me! you could add go tarp slidding where you lay a tarp down on a hill and wet it with soap and water! or pull a name of a family member out of a hat and write that person a letter from the heart. also a treasure map hunt is always fun, full of riddles and pictures they have to figure out before finding the treasure!
