Aging Expectations

Happy Summer – Update!

summerIn May, I wrote our Summer Bucket List.

It is a pretty big list (75 things) and  when I wrote it, I wasn’t sure how much I would accomplish. If any of it!

Since summer has officially started for us, I’m happy to say, I’ve crossed a few things off the list! Not all of what I thought but a few.

Here’s what we’ve done so far…

Ice cream party Completed!

Here are some things we have on the schedule for the next two weeks or so.

  1. Pick blueberries
  2. Bubble blowing fun
  3. Decorate water bottles (want to promote drinking water – mainly, me)
  4. Scrapbook all our fun (to be done throughout the summer, capturing all the memories)
  5. Go camping in the backyard
  6. Catch (and release) fireflies
  7. Visit AdventureAquarium
  8. Visit the Please Touch Museum
  9. Have a Bar-b-Que
  10. See fireworks
  11. Go mini golfing
  12. Go bowling

So, we’ve done a few things. And, have a few more planned.

What I can tell you (as you could probably guess), I packed the schedule too tightly. I’m not changing it though. Having it makes me stick to doing at least some of it. Without it, we’d probably wouldn’t do anything.

I’ll let you know how we’re fairing in the upcoming weeks.

  1. I can’t believe how much you’ve accomplished in such a short time. You’re inspiring me to create my own summer list! Scrapbooking is definitely on my agenda as well- great way to capture the special moments with your kids. We love looking through our old albums and reminiscing about where we’ve been and what we’ve done. No big trips planned for us this year, but we hope to do a couple day or weekend driving trips.
