Here we go - Day #2
Thursday, May 2: Educate us on something you know alot about or are good at.
I think I'm a know it all - I like to talk and teach. I could tell someone where to take their kids in Texas, how to plan a Disney vacation, why living in Austin is so much better than Dallas, how to run a PTA meeting, how to teach kids to pray, why Zyrtec is far superior than Claritin or Allegra and on and on and on.
Yet when someone asks me to educate them on something I know a lot about, my mind goes completely blank.
So here goes what is top of mind 24/7 - planning the best summer you can.
This summer, I encourage you to sit down with your family and plan out the fun you want to have.
Where does everyone want to go on vacation? Let's decide as a family.
What kind of things do we want to do and accomplish this summer? Brainstorm and come up with a list.
Look to add in things you can do in the city you live in. What have you always wanted to try but never did? What kind of fun activities can we do at home that you have always wanted to do?
Some of the most fun things we did last summer required little to no money at all:
Ice Cream for dinner
Built a fort out of pillows
Masking Tape racetrack
Find 5 new sprinkler parks/swimming pools in our area
Stay up real late playing games
We also planned a ton of fun day trips to places all over Texas - from Brenham to see Blue Bell Ice Cream factory to SpaceCenter in Houston to the Tower of Americas in San Antonio.
We put our giant summer "TO DO" list on a poster board in the kitchen and crossed off everything we did. We didn't finish it all (had to leave stuff for this summer) but we never had a day of "I'm bored. What should we do?"
It was a busy summer but it was a fun summer. And I can't wait to do it all over again.
