Last night, we sat around the kitchen table and made a Summer Bucket List. The rules were simple- the things we wanted to do had to be free. Once talking through a few ideas, we realized that free was hard; like making s’mores over a camp-fire. We obviously have to buy graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate. We also let the boys decide what they wanted to do and only prompted them a few times (star-gazing, catch lightning bugs).
We wrote each activity on a popsicle stick and afterwards, the boys put the sticks in little buckets that they found around the house. We’re excited to do these activities together; many of which we’ve done before but there’s something about seeing them written that will hopefully help in planning a little better! Maybe then, the experience will be more memorable too!
