Make a list of fun things to do this summer

Every summer our family makes a list of things we want to do before we have to head back to school in September.  A few weeks ago I shared that list with you and we've been busy trying to squeeze everything in.  I encourage you to make your own to-list with your family this summer.  To help you get started I'm going to throw out a few suggestions.  (These are my own ideas so don't laugh if you think they are funny or sigh if they sound boring.  They're only suggestions and I was at church while I thought of them.  My mind seems to be at its most creative when I'm supposed to be paying attention to something else.  Now where did I put that church program where I have all my ideas written down?)
