However, Pres is at that "young" age where camp programs are limited. So, though he was enrolled in camp the entire month of June through our church, it was only Monday, Wednesday and Friday for a half day. On those other days, we typically went swimming or to the library if they had a fun activity.

Next week is Bennett's last week of day camp, and then we'll really be looking for things to fill our days. Since I know my kids need to stay active, I decided to print a list off my new favorite website www.pinterest.com of "100 Things to Do in the Summer with Kids." We have checked off about a quarter of the items so far, but our goal is to have at least 50% completed by the time the kids go back to school. I know that doesn't sound like much, but the list has a lot of crazy things on it, and ones that aren't really age appropriate for our kids. It has been fun to cross things off, so we'll see how far we get with the list over the next four weeks.

With the school year starting a couple of weeks later, that buys us some time to tackle it! Here are a few photos showing the kids doing some of the activities this summer, and when they start school, I'll post some additional photos with an updated list (to see if we hit our goal of 50%).
