87 glorious days.
The girls have chosen "We're gonna do it all." as our summer theme. (They came up with this after hearing a Phineas and Ferb song about summer vacation.) I may just have to make t-shirts for the occasion. I really think I am as excited about summer as they are.
Maybe more excited.
I have lists of day trips and vacations. I have charts of things they need to do so they don't forget everything they learned in 2nd Grade I have a carefully mapped out calendar of camps and festivals and other events.
We live in a place where warm weather is fleeting, and there is a lot we want to cram into those few short months! So we're ready to go!
On another related note, I really loved doing the 365 Day project -- take and post one photo per day for a year -- even though I didn't always successfully get a photo posted each day. I thought it would be fun to do an abbreviated version just for the 87 days of summer. It's a more manageable period of time and the girls are home so I have something to photograph.
We'll see how it goes!
