2012 Summer Bucket List

Do you have a summer bucket list created yet? Do you know what this is? It is a list of things (some big and some smaller) that you would like to do over the summer break with your family. This is a great way to make sure summer doesn't slip by too quickly. Remember, we are building memories that will be treasured for a lifetime (even after we are gone). Get out a pencil and paper and jot down some ideas (and have your kids help brainstorm) that you would like to add to this summer's adventure. Then take some  time to turn these ideas into a *work of art* to hang in your kitchen. This way you can refer to it often - like when the kids are declaring they are *bored*.

My darling daughter and I have been working on ours. Here is a glimpse into our bucket:
  • Camping (back yard and state park)
  • Catching fireflies
  • Visiting Conner Prairie and going up in their balloon
  • Attending an outdoor concert
  • Memorize Scripture
  • Play in the sprinkler
  • Paint rocks
  • Attend VBS and invite friends and neighbors
  • Learn about a new missionary
  • Go fishing
  • Have a new family over for a cookout
  • Swim as much as we can
  • Lay out on a blanket and look for shapes in the clouds
  • Play with playdoh
  • Spend time on the canoe and paddle boat
  • Make a *passport booklet* for the local parks we plan on visiting
  • Summer Reading program through our library

Do you create a bucket list with your family? If so, what fun and interesting things are on your list this year?
