super summer.

we had the best summer ever.
we made two lists before school was out.
a summer sand bucket list, of fun things to do.
and a learning list, of things the kids needed training or teaching on.

summer sand bucket list:
snowballs (shaved ice @ the beach)
mini golf
little boy david day 
good time to mention the kids made up the list.
slip n slide
see winter the dolphin
put on a play
add a pulley & bucket to the fort
playdates with pals
sleepover at grandparents, almost nightly
write letters, mail letters
play in the garden
downtown disney
open gym at gymnastics
service activities
rays game
ride on grandpa johns boat
family dates
columbia in ybor city, see dinner show
food fight
swim at nanas
tie dye shirts 
(we splatter painted instead)
messy day

learning list:
count really high
another one of trent's requests
ride bike
learn address. birthday.
eating out of a lunchbox
making new friends
learn to swim
keep journal
no grumbling
using words
yes mam. no mam.
cleaning and cooking
praying skills

there are a few things we didn't tackle like learning to tie shoes and fishing on the seawall.
and there were a few extras we didn't plan on like giving up the fafa (pacifier) 
and the sweet love the two babes showed for each other.
they were inseparable!
my most favorite part were the long breakfasts.
not having to go anywhere. 

the summer was a super success.
I loved each day together and am so so thankful for this sweet time.
