75 Days of Summer Fun ideas!

There's only a short number of days before my kiddo heads off to school for the first time. Actually its so small that its less than 80 now! I am a mixture of feelings right now. I am grumpy, fearful, happy and sad and many more all balled up in one. To know that my munchkin will soon be walking through his schools doors for the first time is too much emotion at once but I know its meant to be and good for his future.
