I needed a raise in my allowance. Mowing the grass all summer just wasn’t cutting it.

I’ve written a lot about our 100 Acts of Summer Awesomeness.  For the most part, there were few duplicates.  It was an adventure and it encouraged us to play, all summer.  I’m so glad we did it; it really kept the fun going.  I don’t know if I’ll ever do 100 again, but I always want to be doing Acts of Awesomeness, summer or not.

What a great, great summer it has been.
