The unofficial beginning of summer is only 2 weeks away! Our family counts Memorial Day weekend as the kick-off to our Summer Bucket List even if the calendar tells me that summer isn’t until June 20.
First, I asked the boys what they thought they would like to do this summer. They were very excited to offer up “go to the playground” and “the pool!” (if this doesn’t show the simplicity of young children, #idontknowwhatdoes). Then I wrote out a few of my own ideas, although I am questioning my thought process behind camp in a tent?! I never really liked tent camping BEFORE kids…we haven’t tried it yet WITH. The memories created are what is key here!
After a long Ohio winter, and a WET spring, we’re excited to get out and explore this summer. I like to make a Bucket List for each season. Whether we stick to it or not, it encourages me to think outside of the box when it comes to our daily activities – i.e. we have to try to do more than sitting on the porch with the neighbors, even if it is our favorite summer hobby.
