One of the things we started doing when our grandkids were old enough was to hold "Gramma Camp" for a week in the summer. Gramma plans the fun and Grampa is the "assistant" and just does what he is told. ;) The grandkids stay overnight for a week and we plan fun things to do every day! We have a theme for the week, take day trips, make crafts, learn new things, etc. The grandkids look forward to it every summer. During the week we take pictures of the fun and we put it together in a real hardcover book through Shutterfly. If you haven't made a book through Shutterfly, you should check it out! You can have books of memories to keep forever. Now that the grandkids are older and know how to use the computer better than I do, they put it together themselves. They even put in a dedication page including a photo of the dedication recipient. One year it was dedicated to their little baby brother who was too young to come to Gramma Camp. Another year it was their parents. Just putting together the book itself is an fun activity for them during the week. Gramma Camp helps us create memories that will last a lifetime.
Maybe there are fun things that YOU"D like to do in the summer months but need to plan. How about that sewing project you've wanted to complete. Or that camping trip you've always wanted to take. Or maybe just a bike ride each week. Whatever fun you want to have in the summer, make sure you plan intentionally as to when and how you will make it happen. Get out your bucket list and decide to be able to cross some things off this summer.
Have fun drawing up your SUMMER CALENDAR OF FUN and then get busy planning it! You'll never regret making a decision to do this planning but you JUST may regret not doing those things you've always wanted to do but just let time get away with you and NOT doing them.
HAVE FUN! ; )
