Every year it seems like our summers get shorter and shorter, as a Wisconsinsite, it is your duty to make the most of this beautiful season.  Before the kiddos head back to school, try checking off a few items from your summer bucket list.  Oh you didn’t create a Summer Bucket List?  No problem, Jenn has you covered with five things to do before summer ends.

Now that you’ve had a chance to take in some fresh air and clear your head, it’s time to hit the books.  Literally.  Grab that school supply list and get those notebooks and pencils stat.  Not sure what to get?  Check out my Back to School Gift Guide, here.

If you don’t have a dedicated homework space, now is a great time to create one.  Now don’t get too crazy, you don’t need fancy built-ins or an office (although those would be very nice!), you just need a table, a chair and a little organization – within a quiet space.  I’ve rounded up some ideas for you here.

Now, take a deep breath and enjoy these last few days of summer vacation.  Pitch the tent in the backyard, make an ooey gooey s’more and catch (and release) a few lightning bugs.  Cheers!
