I made a list of activities to do with the girls (well, Stella) last summer to hang on our fridge. I really liked having a list of ideas ready to go when we had a day that boredom threatened to make us grumps. I tried really hard to spread things out over the 4 days a week that Jim worked. Grocery store was usually one day and gymnastics another, so that left 2 days a week for me to plan something. I think we checked most things off the list.
I decided to do it again this summer and our list is already posted on our fridge!
