We are making good progress! We also mapped out the remaining weekends of the summer with the things that need to be accomplished on a Saturday (like the Zoo). It's cool to see all the fun things we've done. I think we are going to extent our completiong date into September. Origionally I wanted to be done by the time school starts, but that may not happen. School is right around the corner!

We have a list of 100 things to do this summer and we haven't done nearly as many as I thought we would. But it's been a really great summer. And I will totally come and make cookies with you!
