Summer Bucket List

It's the first day of summer!!!
Students got out on Friday but then I had teacher training/meetings Monday and Tuesday. Today is my first OFFICIAL day of summer break! I am so excited.
On Instagram I have been asking people for some fun things to do over the summer. I really want to make the most of it and do a lot of fun things!

We signed Boston up for t-ball and swimming lessons so that is going to be most of our summer.
Our area also provides free lunches to kids ages 1-18. I took Boston last year and he just LOVED it! It was also nice because I didn't have to plan lunches. We are doing that this year again and Talia will be able to get lunches too!
Here are some of our summer bucket list ideas and I will also share what people said on Instagram so that you guys can get a good list!
It will be fun to look back at this list in a month to see what we have done already!

No Spilling! with Nuby

If you have been following me for a while, you know that Talia never took a bottle.
Luckily she didn't have to take one until she was 6 months old, but that's also probably why she sucked at it ha. She was so used to getting her milk from me!
We tried SO many bottles. We eventually got her to take a sippy cup/bottle combo. Then as soon as she figured out a regular sippy cup, that became her think.
Talia has always tried to steal Boston's cups and she learned how to drink from a straw at a young age. Boston has a cup like this and Talia always steals it so I figured we should get her her own.
And the best part is... It doesn't spill! So many bottles say they don't spill and 90% of them do. So I am so happy that this one really doesn't spill.

The Clik-it No Spill FlexStraw can be found at Target, TJ MAxx, and Amazon!

Magic Puzzle

We have been loving all toys from PicassoTiles. I am all about STEAM toys lately and want anything and everything that is a toy and also serves as educational.
Maybe it's the teacher in me but I just love any toy that teaches them things and keeps them entertained.
This 3-D Magic Puzzle Cube has been so much fun for Boston. The pieces are magnetic so they hold together very well. Each part of the cube is a different picture so you are able to build 6 different puzzles. Boston also plays with them just as blocks and will build buildings, towers, and anything his little mind can imagine. He has been entertained by these blocks for HOURS.
The best part is, it's super affordable and there is currently a 10% off coupon on Amazon that you can apply to your order!
