It has begun

In about 10 minutes my oldest will burst through the door (quite literally) and it will officially be summer vacation. Natty’s last day was Wednesday. I always sit here on the last week of school and wonder what on earth we will fill our summer vacation with. Then suddenly it is August and I’m saying “Wow, that actually went kind of fast.”

So what are we going to do this summer?

  • Mark’s brother and his family (5 cousins) arrive late on Sunday and are here for two weeks. The kids can’t wait. Natalie is dying for Averee to see how long her hair has gotten.
  • Vacation Bible School is the second week in June. This is the first year that Natalie is old enough to attend and she’s excited.
  • The kids have been begging to go back to Makutu’s Island – a 20,000 sq ft indoor play area. If you live in the Phoenix area you gotta check it out.
  • Finish a few projects in the backyard like painting the playhouse and getting the flower beds done.
  • Repaint Noah’s room since he’s outgrown the “firefighter” decor.
  • Find bunkbeds for the girls room.
  • Spend lots of time on the water slide in the backyard.
  • Crash our friend’s houses who have pools 🙂
  • Arrange two dozen play dates with friends.
  • Go to the cabin to escape the triple digit heat.

And hopefully we will be going to Ethiopia to pick up our kids!!!

    Sounds like you’ve got it all planned out. You’ll have to let me know when you head out to Makutu’s Island because my kids would love to go, too!
