You’ve never lived until you’ve….

I feel like my life is tumbling forward at a frenzied pace, and there’s no way to slow it down. My kids are getting big, and another one will be joining our little family very soon. Sometime I worry that I don’t do enough for my kids, that I don’t show them how much fun life can be. I’m all they’ve got to show them the best childhood possible. So this is a little list to help us remember those things that make being a kid so great. I can’t wait to start checking it off. Christensen_36_A

  • go to the beach and build an awesome sand castle
  • stay up late
  • sent up a tent inside and sleep in it
  • go strawberry picking and eat strawberries until we’re sick
  • find a new park and have a picnic
  • stay in pajamas and watch movies all day
  • catch a fish
  • catch a salamander
  • catch a crawdad
  • have a princess lemonade party
  • make a lemonade stand and sell it for 10 cents a cup
  • play basketball
  • play mummy tag
  • finish an awesome puzzle and glue it together
  • get in a food fight
  • have a water balloon fight
  • learn to hula hoop
  • be in a parade
  • make homemade ice cream
  • collect cool rocks
  • make a zoo out of play-doh
  • go to the Zoo and look at all the animals
  • have a red day and wear only red, and eat only red foods
  • go to a waterpark
  • have a party for no reason at all
  • splash in lots of big puddles and get sopping wet
  • buy fresh flowers at the farmers market
  • watch an amazing sunset and let the kids take lots of pictures of it
