School's Out for Summer!

Well, sort of. We still have a lot going on! Both kids have come up with some plans for their summer months...

To be followed by ???

And of course there will be beach days

And river-swimming days

Movies, a few good books (we're planning to read Holes next -- I understand it is very good, and we enjoyed the movie!), a few random field trips to be determined, some general laziness when we're not doing yard work, or home repairs.

Do you have any fun summer plans? I did read this great blog post yesterday, which got me thinking about little ways to add some fun.
