Last summer, our Savvy team made a list of 50 things we wanted to do with our kids during our precious days of summer vacation. This year, I thought I would update you on what our family did and didn't manage to do last summer.
That adds up to 28 out of 50. More than half—not bad!
Here are a few things we did that were not on the list:
51. Play card games (X)
52. Take a boat ride (X)
53. Spend time with grandparents (X)
54. Read chapter books (X)
55. Make new friends (X)

56. Go sightseeing in our town ( )
57. Try horseback riding ( )
58. Clean out the toy shelves ( )
59. Work on swim strokes ( )
60. Visit a friend who lives far away ( )
