100 Things To Do

I know I've seriously neglected my blog lately. The last couple weeks before school got out was very stressful. I am back, and I have a list of 100 things to do during the summer. I made the list for my kids because my daughter is always bored. She doesn't know how to play by herself. So I told them if they can't find something to do on the list they have to clean their playroom if they bother me with being bored.
