The Summer Bucket List





It is officially summer at our house. There are always many activities that we'd like to do during the summer months but it seems that before we know it, it's time to get ready for back-to-school and we haven't crossed very many activities off the list.


I suggested to the girls that we make a list. A summer bucket list -- all the things we want to do before summer is over. They were all for it.


Sunday evening I got out the supplies and Madison took the initiative to make the list for us. Alison and I gave her ideas but she put them on paper.


Now our list is hanging in the kitchen as a daily reminder to take time each week to do at least one activity. Some activities are very simple and don't require any supplies or expense. I'm not promising that we'll cross everything off but we've already done the camping (of course, the girls said our trip this weekend didn't really count as it was done pre-list) and we've got tickets to the Royals baseball game next weekend. That will be 2 down and 20 to go.


Do you have a summer bucket list? What's on yours? I'd love to hear your plans.

I love this! We don't have a summer bucket list...but I think we will NOW! Great idea. And a good way to DO simple things that the kids want to do...and beat boredom!

I sure hope you will be able to cross Colorado off your bucket list! I know there is a niece dying to see all of you and introduce her growing baby to you!

That is a great list. I'd love to make a list, but our summer is a lot like everything else since we both work and our kids aren't in school yet.
