  1. Good morning! I’m impressed that you’re making such progress with your summer bucket list! Our kids have focused on lots of time with friends, and we just returned from a wonderful one-week trip to Bar Harbor (highly recommended!). We plan to cram in a few special activities and a day trip or two into the remaining time. It always goes too quickly!!!
