As a homeschooler, when school is out for the summer, life isn’t as drastic of a change as someone who has been going to school and now they get to stay home all summer. We just fall into our normal routine except we don’t do school work. As the middle of June rolled around I started to panic that summer was slipping away. Tristyn and I spend a lot of time together. We cook together, we clean together, we read together, we organize the house together and we run errands together. I don’t want her to only remember that we “worked” together. I do not have many summers left with her so I want to capture the time we have.
I grabbed a piece of graph paper (because it had lines and I can’t write straight!) and quickly made a summer bucket list. (Remember this one from 2013 and this one from 2012.) This year it is simple because that is how I want our summer.
I listed things that we both enjoy. She loves to cook, so we plan on doing a lot of things in the kitchen such as make dog treats and paleo popsicles. We also plan on perfecting the perfect paleo pie, but we didn’t write that down yet! I listed donuts, which is really a big deal around here. I plan on taking her one morning for donuts, which is a very rare treat. We are still adding to the list as we think of ideas.
The goal was to make sure my days are intentional with her. I have a tendency to get caught up cleaning, organizing, redecorating the house or working my plexus business and when I finish the day is gone. I love having a list that will help up schedule days to do something different and enjoy our summer together.
What do you have on your summer bucket list?
