Summer Bucket List
Activity DesignerLara Housser
My oldest finished his last day of kindergarten today, so it's officially summer in our house! We are all soooo excited--the long days, beautiful summer evenings, and not-so-early-crazed-and-rushed mornings. Plus, looking ahead at three months of summer feels so full of possibility and promise! But I know it will be over before we know it...and while I'm so looking for plenty of slower, un-scheduled days, I also want to approach the way we spend our days with some intent. So to ensure we create and cherish all the special moments we can, we decided to start a new tradition: our Summer Bucket List. We did one for Fall, and it was such a treat for all of us. (It's nothing fancy, but like the Fall one, I used some fun fonts and laminated it on my handy Costco laminator so we can post it on the fridge.)
What You'll Need
How We Did It
We started our list a couple weeks ago on a long car ride, and finished it up over the last few days during dinnertime conversations. It was very much a collaborative effort, with contributions from my two-year-old ("ride a train!") to my four-year-old ("make a cherry pie!") to my six-year-old ("ride a water slide!") Oh, and I added some too ("outdoor movie night!") I can't wait to get started!
