Memorial Day’s come and gone. That means winter is too (finally!). Now it’s time for fun in the sun. And you know me… at the start of each season I need to have a checklist of all the stuff I will need (hopefully) in order to have an organized season. For me organization is a synonym for sanity. So here come the lists… And the list of lists (I kid you not!). But being a mama one of my most important lists is my children’s list. Here it is. And, please, please, please, let me know if I missed any essentials. You’ll have an integral part of my summer sanity. 🙂
