My kids take turns with us. Sometimes we do what kid A wants. Sometimes kid B chooses. Sometimes my hubby and I choose.

Glad you like the list. We did a concert at Cedar Mills library last night. It was great.joy.gif

For the end of summer, the back to school swap. This saves me hundreds each year on backpacks, lunchboxes and clothing for my kids. Take what they outgrew... look through the stuff for something "new to you".

Oh my gosh, the symphony was awesome with ballet dancers, cannons and fireworks. Hope some of you got to go.


Last cool thing of summer.. take a picnic to Chapman elementary and see the swifts descend into the chimney at sunset.

Saw the swifts tonight. They were amazing as usual. They are at the Chapman school until the end of September.... go while the rain holds off.

I second going to see The Swifts at Chapman School. What a unique natural phenomenon. It is beautiful and fun and free! Definitely going to make this a September tradition.
