Even though it is still summer, add these to your list of five things to do before the summer ends.
Don't let the summer end without having a picnic. Take your planned meal to the back yard at least once, to enjoy the great outdoors. Put your bug repellent on and place the candles around so the fun is not affected by critters. Pick a great, sunny, relaxing and family picnic day.If you pick a day and get rained out, reschedule or just move your party time for your picnic indoors or follow the rain clouds out of town to another town where the skies are clear. Make your list so the picnic includes the most important things for enjoyment.
Make sure you go to a nearby park before the summer is gone. Some allow big family reunions, so you can get two things accomplished at the park without one person doing all the work at one house.Make some arrangements so everyone knows what to bring for the park fun. Remember the volley ball and other entertainment for all ages so the fun can be had by all. If you don't want to spend a whole lot of gas to get to the park, plan a group trip where the costs of gas are shared with another neighborhood family or church family.
Especially if you live in the city, make some plans to go to the mountains, ocean, lake or to the meadow in the country setting for at least a few hours. If you can; do this drive to the country more than once.You and your family can enjoy the silence of nature and the sightseeing of animals while you are there.When it is possible bring a tent and sleeping bags and truly get back to nature for an over night outing before the end of summer sneaks up on you. If you can leave the car, bike, hike or take public transportation gas prices won't hinder your budget, fun time.
Recreation near a lake, river, ocean, pond or creek can be relaxing. Plan some day, at least one, before the summer ends to enjoy the fun of some water activities. Plan on enjoying the sounds of water and the sights of it too. Bring the family dog if permitted so he can have the water fun too.If you have a fishing license catch dinner while at the water source. Ask the whole family what water area they would like to spend some summer time enjoying. Take a vote or do each of the suggestions if possible. Draw one out of the hat, but have some fun while at the water before the summer ends.
Don't let the summer pass without repairing any hurtful relationship with another person. Remember the silent times and call that person to let them know what a big person you are to make the first step toward repairing a hurtful relationship. No matter how long it has been since you talked to that person, you will feel so much better if you are the first to repair that hurtful situation with your phone call to just say hello.You don't need to apologize unless you think it will help you and the other person to do that. Don't let that repair hang any longer; do something about it.
The summer has flown by so quickly. Hopefully we can all take your suggestions and enjoy the remainder.
