Update on Summer Bucket List #2

At the beginning of the summer, I made a summer family bucket list that listed things that I wanted to do with our family. I was doing this as a way to be intentional with how we spent our time over the summer and not just end up watching TV and lounging around. Well it is now August 1...so I thought I would do a check-in to see how we are coming with our bucket list and to see what we still need to fit in during the next 2.5 weeks before school is back in session!

Not too bad! We still need to go to the mill for ice cream, to the movies, eat luch on the porch, play tag in the yard, make smores, and have a picnic! We have done so much though! I notice that I have been more intentional with what we are doing and the plans that we are making. It has made for a great summer so far. Looking forward to seeing what adventures August will bring.
What have you been up to over the month of July or during the summer?


  1. Look at this- you are almost done with your list! Great summer you had so far, guys!

    1. I was surprised when I tallied everything we had done off...I will have to say I am impressing myself. I feel like I have been very intentional and so the summer hasn't just gone by without doing anything. :)
