Summer Check List 2020

Normally at this time of year, I share my summer list of ideas that we have compiled over several years. But when I reviewed the list this year, it had some things we won't be able to do in this season. So as with many things, I am trying to focus on what we CAN do in stead of what we can't. I will update the list as summer goes on if more options are available. Use your best judgement to know if these options are good for you and your family. Let me know in the comments or on Facebook if you have other ideas. We love to try new things.
