We have a family beach trip coming up soon. The girls were going crazy asking when we were leaving so olivia made them a countdown calendar. Every night before bed they each get to put a sticker on the current date and then they count the days left until the trip. This has been an excellent method to curb them from continually asking about the trip. It is getting closer and all of us are getting stoked. I think after this one runs it's course we might have to do a new one for Christmas.
