every summer we make a list of all the things we want to do and get all amped up about how fun summer is going to be. the boys love it and they love thinking up things to do and then checking them off the list. usually it’s just on a simple piece of paper. often we draw pictures since not everyone is a reader, you know. well, with one boy done with school and another nearly done it was time for the summer list. this year we turned it into a huge rainbow!! it’s hanging on our dining room wall. and personally I think it’s our best ever. we all worked on it together. I decided on the grand scheme and then we started writing and drawing.
J decided to just make a big green drawing and contributed little drawings here and there. C practiced writing his words and came up with the brilliant idea to color over the words after we had done the activity. isn’t that genius? so at the end of the summer we will have a colored-in rainbow! I love these little people.
this picture shows its size a little better. by the end of the summer the hope it to have a full color rainbow on the wall! the boys keep adding things to the list, even totally ordinary things like ‘buy new shoes’. bless them. I would like to add ‘boys will stop wrestling incessantly’ but it’s a summer list not a wish list, sadly.
