It is summer time. We said goodbye to our classmates and teachers today. We also said goodbye to early mornings and structured days. So we made a "summer jar". We all thought of things we want to do this summer. Fun things. Simple things. Crafty things. Adventurous things. We wrote them down, cut them into strips, folded them up, and put them in a glass jar. Starting tomorrow, we will draw an idea out everyday and it will give us a project or a destination or an activity. The kids are so excited about it.
I have a folder on Pinterest of kid's art projects I've been wanting to do so I took this opportunity to put those ideas into the jar. The kids had funny ideas like Delaney wants to make a cold, icy drink and sip it in the shade. I am thinking that day may be repeated a few times. Ford would put Legoland in the jar 30 times if we would let him and anything that has to do with him getting very wet....a pool, the sprinklers, water gun battles, etc.
