Surviving Summer's end...and the bucket list update.

Summer keeps truckin' along. 
And it is coming to an end very soon.
I have HIGH expectations for us.
I have booked lots of fun for the next couple weeks.
And I am sad to see the summer of a 6 year old, three year old, and 6 month old coming to an end. 
But I am also REALLY REALLY excited for the new routine. 
Space.  And new experiences.

And the bickering, romping, whining, and crabby pants are in full force here.
So to keep things fresh...let me remind you that the simplest thing ...
taking an inside toy and moving it outside for an afternoon...can make a HUGE difference in everyone's day!  Seriously, the train on the big open driveway was a hit with my boys and all the neighbors.  Hip Hip Hooray!

Meanwhile, here is a little update on our summer bucket list.

Holy smokes, Sarah! You have done a ton on your list. Way to go!

I think you'll be crossing off #18 soon and I actually kind of like that you haven't done #12 yet... :)
