Official Summer To Do List + Our Little Nature Walk

Okay, so I totally forgot to include in my last post that Morgan and her daddy had their first father-daughter breakfast at her school the Friday before Father's Day. :-)  How sweet is that?  They had doughnuts for the dads and the kids were given their regular breakfast.  Well, Morgan ate her daddy's doughnut, and he ate her breakfast. Too funny!

It's been gloomy and rainy around here and Morgan was a little sick earlier this week, so it's been a pretty laid back week for us. We needed it. My sweet MIL came and kept Morgan a couple of days, and we've just spent every afternoon at home.

I ran across this little craft (found here) earlier this week and thought it'd be fun to try.

Everyone frames their summer to do list, right?  :-)

Then today we did a nature walk activity (found here). We love being outside, but so far the hot weather hasn't allowed for much outside play. So when I saw the forecast today was just high 80s, I had to plan something for outdoors. Since there was a chance of rain, we didn't walk to the lake or playground -- I didn't want to be caught in the rain. So we did our nature walk right here in the yard. :-) And it was perfect.

When we got back in the house, I thought it'd be fun to do something with the little treasures we found, so we made it a short, color sorting craft (no paint this time).

This age is so fun.  I hope to craft with Morgan until she's too "cool" to be doing crafts with her mom (hopefully that's never).  I've been running across all kinds of activities and pinning them in Pinterest (thanks, Hope, for inviting me and basically getting me started 'cause I had no idea what I was doing).  Hopefully we can do many more crafts and activities this summer!  {And if you're not on Pinterest but you're interested, I think I can invite people.  Email me at if you want in. You'll like it.}

Have a great weekend, everyone!
