So I first read about this FABULOUS idea for a summer list from Amy's Notebook (momadvice) and her subsequent post showing her family's summer list. I keep a running list of things I'd like to do with my daughter in my planner, but wasn't satisfied that I was doing a good job of working through our activities. I thought this was a great idea, so of course I started mine right away!
Since Sweetpea is still too young to actively participate in creating the list, ours started as a full page in my planner and was transferred to PowerPoint and subsequently printed. It hangs on our refrigerator as a reminder to get out and have fun!

This idea was my first introduction to the fabulously creative Megan Duerksen. You can check out her summer list here: http://megduerksen.typepad.com/whatever/2008/06/the-summer-list.html
and an update she did recently here: http://megduerksen.typepad.com/whatever/2008/07/catching-up.html
What do you do to help plan your summer adventures? Have you tried a summer list? What activities have you most enjoyed? I'd love to hear your ideas!
