YEEHAW! It’s officially summer here! Super great summer fun ideas!


I LOVE summer!  Actually, my kids have been out of school for 2 weeks now!  I am one of those Mom’s that absolutely LOVES having my kids home for the summer! 


I’m already farming my kids out to different relatives to spend time away from home, and to get to enjoy more time with cousins, aunts, uncles, and of course Grandparents.  They’ve stayed with both sets of Grandparents and my Brother and his family (thanks, Katrina).  I think the time away from home is so important and fun for kids! Next week it is church camp for my daughter, we have a couple of trips to San Diego planned (to visit my BFF!!!). Squeee!  I’m trying to squish in a few camping trips, too!


Other parts of my summer that I LOVE is the stuff we do at home.  I’ve got science fair books on hold at my library so we can have lots of science fair fun all summer long!  We are also busy gardening, hiking, movie watching, snuggling, popsicle eating, baking, cooking, crafting, and having Mommy Summer School. Tomorrow I will tell you all about my Mommy Summer School, here is where I have talked about it before and it gives GREAT ideas of super fun and educational stuff to do with your kids!!  So, I’ve compiled a list of all sorts of different summer fun for you guys to peruse, of really amazing Summer Fun stuff to do.
