I started the link party with this "Doozy List" post, and have noticed that even though it is a list that is not finished, summer has hit & there are much more pressing things (and not so pressing things) that I want to get done that are not on the list. I told you all last week I would be working on a new "Summer Doozy List," and I am...finally...right now.
I do have to say, looking over the week and 1/2 that my kids have been out of school, I am very happy with how we have spent our time and the things we have done. I'm going to include some of those things on the list, just to have the satisfaction of crossing it off!
This list will have a different feel than my original Doozy list -which I will for sure be getting back to once school is in session- because my main goal this summer is to be the best mommy I can be and enjoy these fleeting, precious moments with my growing girls.
So here we go...
at least a start...
I will be adding more, soon, I'm sure...
