The Thompson's Summer Fun List 2013

Well, Summer is upon us, apparently. Not the holidays, we have another 8 weeks to go yet! - and the weather is pretty temperamental at the moment but the sentiment is there. I really enjoyed completing as many things as we could on our 2012 Summer Fun List and we did manage to complete most things even though my blogging didn't manage to keep up! The idea is from the folks at the Happy Family Movement and really helped to focus our summer activities so that we actually did the things we always plan to but never quite get round to doing. This year we are doing it again and hopefully I'll manage to remember to keep up with the blog too!! It will be pinned up on the cupboard in the Kitchen where everybody can see it as a reminder to all of us that there is fun to be had!

 So our list for this year is....

1. Feed ducks 2.Climb a tree 3. Puddle jumping 4. Write a letter 5. Make a fingerprint tree 6. Make a den under the table 7. Watch a rugby match 8. Go to the cinema 9. Find a crop circle 10.
