Summer is over {results of our summer to do list}

I made a list of things to do over the summer because I wanted it to be fun for my kids.  It's our last summer before school started, and before we had a family of 5.  I wanted to have some goals but wanted it to be fun, relaxed, and short term - easier to check off then New Year's resolutions. 

I thought the summer would end when I had the baby or when Kindergarten started.  It kinda all started at the same time, and now that I'm settled, here's the outcome of our list. 
Some of the ideas we didn't do b/c I got more pregnant and big and so hot that I didn't want to do the outdoor golfing, lemonade stand, or pick up baseball game.  We still may do those things later . . . We did a lot though!! 

(no pictures, maybe I'll add them later.)

√ Disney in May
√ Southwest Pool so I can swim laps and Dylan can do THE swim test (25 meters)
