Summer Bucket List

June is here, bringing with it all the fun summer activities we love. The best part about working at home (for me) is being able to sleep in while the boys are out of school. I'm big on letting the boys do their own thing and just relax and be kids during the summer. We do a lot of reading and art projects - but we also play a lot of video games. I make no apologies that we are a gamer family. :)

To make sure we leave the paradise of our home at some point, the boys and I wrote up a list of all the fun things we want to do this summer. We did a similar list last year, and it was fun to mark things off the list. So, this year, we made a new list.

I love that the list is written by Jack - a great keepsake of his handwriting. The last 2 lines are my own handwriting, which is oddly similar to his. Crazy.

We've already made a great start on our summer list. We went to the Lincoln Children's Museum...

We went to the pool...

I have tan lines on my feet - a true testament to how much time I'm spending outside.

We've even had a family game night and gone for a few walks in the evenings.

A few things that aren't on the list - baseball, baseball, and more baseball.

And two sport camps...1 for soccer and 1 for baseball:

Going green for Ireland on the last day of camp

We had a great weekend visit from Grandpa and Uncle Kyle...

We're looking forward to another family visit this weekend from Grandma Debbie and Cousin Erik. We're hoping the weather is nice enough for some more swimming. All in all, it's shaping up to be a great summer.

I love bucket list. We made our list but haven't started anything yet. The boys had their last day of school today - so the fun starts tonight with a slumber party in the living room!! Have a great summer.

I can't believe your boys are just now out of school! I had no idea schools ran that long. Time to start the summer fun!
