The First Half...

Summer is HALF over!

And we are halfway through our 80 Days of Summer fun.

There are 80 days of summer vacation,
Until school comes around just to end it.
So the annual problem for our generation,
Is finding a good way to spend it.

Like maybe:

Going to storytime at the library

Earning a free book at Barnes and Noble

Making friendship bracelets

Blowing giant bubbles

Celebrating the 4th of July

Making homemade ice cream

Watching a movie at the dollar theatre (The Lorax in 3D)

Trying a new fruit (dinosaur pluots... the kids were NOT fans)

Visiting the water park

Visiting a new park (Reunion Trails Park in Henderson.  It.  Is.  Awesome!)

Having a picnic at the park

Learning about a new culture (Japan)

Making playdough (moonsand with flour and baby oil)

Watching the Fratello Marionettes show at the library

Eating frozen custard from Nielsen's

Visiting the pet store

Making a fort

Playing water pinata

Painting our annual handprints

Making bird feeders

Planting a garden

Writing and putting on a play
(Nephi gets the Brass Plates.  King Laban was played by the vacuum)

Visiting a museum (Lied Science Center)

Celebrating Adam's 9th birthday

Making a new snack (fairy toast from Australia)

Coloring nature rubbings

Writing a book

Going to the summer reading kick-off at the library
(where we scored these sweet tickets)

It's been FUN! 

I love being with these kiddos all day long!
