Gearing Up for Summer Fun

It's been crazy busy in our house for the last few weeks.  Not too busy to have fun, just too busy to find time to share any of our goings-on.  School is winding down though, which means my experiment into part-time work outside the home (as a paraprofessional for a local private school) is winding down as well.  The children and I have already started brainstorming a list of simple, summer fun ideas to keep us active, but hopefully a little less stressed through the summer months.  We have a major move looming in the near future though, so we'll see how it goes.

In the meantime, here's a quick look back at a few of our favorite fun-times from last summer.  Just click the images to open the posts, and hopefully find some inspiration for your own summer fun to come.
