81 Days of Summer Vacation - The List

As I was talking with a friend that works full time I realized that I am really fortunate to be able to stay home with Julia while I go to school.  I often find myself consumed by the "things" that need to be done and put off spending time actually playing.  I decided that is going to change!  I only have 18 months left in school before I will be back working full-time.  I want to make sure that I make the best of that time with Julia and learn to let the "things" wait.  
While watching Phineas and Ferb, the theme song gave me a great idea!  I have 81 days that I will be home with Julia between now and Labor Day.  I have made a list of 81 things for us to do together.  We will pick one thing from the list to do each day.  Some things are going out and about, some are nice rainy day activities, and others are just fun things to do at home together.  The point is, 

I will make the best of our time together!
