I’ve decided to create a bucket list here of all the things I plan to do with Gray while his big brothers are in school. I’ll have Ivy, too, of course, but my main goal is to do fun activities for Gray (age almost 4) and to get
me us out of the house every once in a while. Also, this isn’t to replace park days & playdates, we’ll still do that as often as we can.
I’ll be adding to this list (I hope) as well as crossing things off as we go. And maybe making notes if we’ll be repeating said activities, etc.
Your suggestions in the comments are greatly appreciated!
