Summer Goals & Plans

So, I am not really a “bucket list” person, but I thought it would be fun to put down everything I’d like to do this summer. As the kids get older I am very aware of the limited opportunities for summer fun together. I also thought that by getting some of these goals down, it may make them more concrete and therefore actually happen!

I stole the idea from my friend Jean at So Not Organized – since I’m trying to blog more, she suggested I check out 30 Days of Summer on  her blog, and I do think if you’re stuck for topic ideas, you’ll definitely find some inspiration!

30 Days of Summer

Here in the Hudson Valley, the kids don’t go back to school until after Labor Day, so we still have two whole months ahead! I wonder how many of these goals I’ll check off at summer’s end?

  1. Great list! I see some items on your list I may borrow to add to my “bucket” list. Love the idea of a family photo and the frozen margaritas (may need those if I manage to get my crew to take a family photo 😉 ha!). Thanks so much for joining us in the 30 Days of Summer blog series!
