Here it is! Our Summer Bucket List!
(See last summer's list HERE.)
I was happy with how much we were able to get done on last year's list. It definitely served its purpose and got us up and moving and doing things that we normally don't do around this city.
I just read a post over at Nesting Place, where she talks about how many summers she has left until her three boys leave for college. (Go over and read it - you'll be glad you did!) She's figured that she has a total of 18 summers left before her youngest leaves for college and is determined to make the most of each of them. Her perspective got me thinking and I'm determined to do the same.
It really hit home yesterday when I told the kids we were going on a picnic and Vance said, with a clenched fist, "Yessss! Awesome!" and I laughed to myself because he got so excited about a picnic.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I bet a can count on one hand how many years I have left until picnics, bubbles, popsicles on hot days, and simple things like that loose their luster. Truth is, I'm going to miss it when that happens.
So! Here's to having fun and making everyday count!
The kids had lots of ideas, so looks like we're going to be busy! I left room just in case we want to add anything too.
Are you like me and need a list to keep you going through the summer? How does your family do Summer Vacation? I'd love to know!
