Corrie's Summer Plans

Our family is ready for summer!  We have big plans: a trip to Hawaii, a trip (for me!) to Chicago and Indianapolis, possibly a Mississippi visit, lots of pool time, sleeping late, and more.

I asked Corrie if we could make a list of fun activities that she and I could do together - just us girls.  She ran with that idea, and now I have a list of 49 fun mother/daughter activities. 

Highlights include:
  • travel ideas (Disney Land, Disney World and Kansas)
  • cooking (bake cookies, cakes, pies, pancakes, waffles and pizza)
  • napping on the couch
  • relaxing on the couch
  • entertainment (the Nutcracker and Rio 2)
  • crafts (flowers and bracelets)
  • make a video
  • puddle stomping
  • eat popcorn
  • eat candy
  • eat apples
  • eat pears
She even added some self-improvement goals:
  • jogging and exercising
And a few things that we don't know how to do:
  • play guitar together
  • sewing
And she recognizes that even chores will give us time together:
  • cleaning the house
  • grocery shopping
But my favorite item on the list is "a wedding."  So if anyone I know is getting married this summer, I have a 6 year old girl who would like to be my date to your wedding.  

I don't think we will manage to do everything on the list.  I'm pretty sure Disney (on both coasts) is out.  And I doubt we will even attempt to master the guitar in the next two months.  Jogging is questionable, too.

But I look forward to eating pears and relaxing on the couch with my favorite girl.
