I live in a state that is known for Year Round school. Basically this means the kids go to school for 9 weeks then have 3 weeks off. This also means the kids only have a 3 week summer which SUCKS.
I remember my summers as a kid being filled with so much fun. Late nights, family road trips, staying out and reading in rain storms and watching the sunset, sleepovers every other night and we always went to the local city Fair. I want all of that for my kids but I have to squish it all into a 3 week time period. So our solution is a bucket list!
