What a fun list! It kinda makes me nostalgic because my boys are now too old for some of the things on your list. It is good that you are doing them while they still are young enough to do them! It is such a fleeting time. I will be posting my summer list soon.

I found this years list harder to make than ever. With two girls that seem very mature and two rough and tumble boys, I'm not sure if I've got them all covered equally. :) But we will give it a go.
