Smith Summer of Fun!

A few months ago, I started thinking about how much time I spend with my children and then I realized I don’t spend enough quality time with them.  I might see them all the time, but am I making memories or spending the time they need with me?  

 

This is officially Landry’s last summer before she starts school, and I want her to go to school with a great attitude and a loving heart.  I know my actions affect her because I see her mimicking me all the time.  

 

So, with that being said, I wanted to come up with some fun summer ideas for us.  I’ve seen so many of these floating around, so I came up with the Smith Summer Bucket List of 2014.  

 

So, I’m a realist and I know that there are probably a few things on here that will not get accomplished, but I’m going to try my darndest to do as many as we can.  Some, two at a time!

 

Last week, Landry finished swim lessons and one of the items on our list got crossed off.  She officially learned how to dive into the pool!  

 

And, along with learning how to dive, she won the award for Most Improved!  So proud of our girl!

 


It rained this week a lot!  So, we took advantage of the rain and crossed off another item.  We went out and played in the rain.  She loves rain, and as long as it’s not lightening, we go and play in the puddles.  

 


Also, since we are on the topic of fun summer, I got to go to dinner with my mom and sister the other night!  I love the relationship that we three share and seeing them is like being home to me.  I cannot wait for Landry to get a little older and then she can join us!

 

Our summer should be a good one!  I can’t wait to see all we do.
