Every summer I like to make a list of things I want to do before summer “kicks the bucket” so to speak.
(This is not a real bucket list, which is a list of things you want to do before YOU kick the bucket.)
We’ve got about three weeks left before we start school, so this will be my second-to-last bucket list update. Hopefully I can finish getting this stuff knocked out before my final report!
1. Declutter my house from top to bottom.
I spent almost a whole Saturday working on the office since my last update, and I got rid of tons of stuff. So, yay me!
Still need to do Sonia and Zoe’s room and the under-the-stairs closet.
2. Paint Joshua’s room and
new loft bed.
The bed is painted! And we have two paint samples to try out on the wall before we buy a large bucket of paint.
Play in the water twice a week.
Yep….I think we’re averaging slightly more than twice a week, actually.
Say yes to sleepovers.
Check. Plenty of sleepovers and plenty of playing with friends.
5. Go biking at least once a week.
My mom took the girls biking! My own bike was out of commission for a little bit…one of my tires needed a new rim liner, but it’s all fixed up now.
Visit the library every other week.
7. Redo chore lists.
8. Plan school for next year and buy curriculum.
Yes! I bought almost everything…just a couple of books left to buy, and I accidentally ordered the wrong CD for one book, so I need to exchange that.
9. Write to my grandpa once a month.
Still need to send him an August letter.
Eat outside once a week.
We’ve visited the park a few times recently, and have eaten lunch outside. So, check?
Go fruit picking.
Yep! This happened.
How about you? Have you spent your summer days the way you wanted to?
