This morning I woke up with guilt, not really a new sensation, but still unpleasant. I realized that this was Natalie's first "summer vacation" and I feel like we have let it slip by and not done enough. Even though I know we really did do quite a bit! We went to Oregon (which I still need to blog about), played with friends, went to the movie theater, attended story time at the library on a regular basis, swam (but not enough!), picked strawberries, relaxed, rode bikes, and many other small things to fill up our days. It's very tricky coming up with things to do that won't cause us to be outside melting. It's a lot easier to go to the park on a regular basis when it isn't 400 degrees outside! And after asking her just now she said she had a good summer, but maybe that's because she hasn't fully grasped that soon all but her weekends are going to be consumed with school and homework.
So, I have got 2 weeks left to cram in some fun activities, possibly a few things they have been begging for but we haven't gotten too, and really wear her out! Haha, and probably wear myself out in the process. Does anyone have any ideas to fill up the last few precious days of summer?
