To know me is to know that I love summer, and I’m tickled as pig hoof pie that Noah is developing a love for summer as well. It’s a very important season to us because… well… it’s the season of endless fun!
He’s still got two days of school left, after which time we’ll be free as can be. So in preparation for our big responsibility hiatus, we went to Wendy’s and decided to make an “official summer plan” while we downed some grub.
Noah started devouring his chicken nuggets while I dove head first into my Berry Almond Chicken Salad (yeah, that’s a real thing, and yeah, it’s as good as it sounds). I pulled out a pad of paper and asked Noah what we should call our list.
“Call it the ‘we gotta do it during the summer list!’” he screamed.
“Okay,” I said as I wrote his exact words across the top. Then I told him to tell me everything we should put on our list. But, before he could say anything, I made him pinky promise me that we would do everything on our list during the summer, no matter how long it was.
Now, I wasn’t necessarily expecting much of a list. I mean, how many things can a five year old come up with?
Apparently a lot.
