it's summertime, baby! the sun is out (nope), the kids are home from school (yay.), and it's time to relax a little bit (yeah, right.). just kidding! rain or shine, it's time to have some fun with the kids at home, with the extra sunlight, and with the opportunity to make some more memories before these days are gone. so, once again, Shannon (dang, she is talented!) has designed our family's annual "summer bucket list," complete with all sorts of things we'd like to accomplish in the next couple of months. we have some of our annual stand-by's, like playing in the rain, having ice cream for dinner, vbs, summer camp, etc. But we also have some things that will be unique to this summer, like making donuts, playing disc golf, and celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, just to name a few. we've got high expectations for the summer, and we know the only way to do it is to say "yes" to life, and to make it happen, so here we go!
