This post is 100% tooting my own motherhood horn, but I am just so excited about these that I couldn't resist.
Last year I made my boys a "Summer Fun Kit" that they received on the last day of school stocked with supplies to keep us happily entertained during the summer. It was a hit, so I decided to make it a tradition.
This year there is added incentive to make it fun and special. On June 1 we will pick the boys up from school and drive out of town...for good. I am heart broken just thinking about it but thinking about them being so sad leaving their friends breaks my heart even more. So, I want to do anything I can to ease their sadness.
On their chairs when they get in the car they are going to find the following:
Summer Adventure Books (which in truth is my excuse to get them to write in a daily journal)
and the best part, the Summer Fun Coupon Book that includes a coupon for each week of the summer...things like a cookie ice cream sandwich at Smart Cookie, a cupcake at The Sweet Tooth Fairy or shake and fries at The Purple Turtle. Each week they get to pick one. We had a blast doing this last summer.
So there you go. I told you I was doing nothing but tooting my own horn. But I am pretty excited about these.
