I didn't anticipate how exhausted I would be upon returning from our vacation! After three days catching up around the house, I figured today would be a good day to go on a little adventure with the kiddos. Everyone was getting restless, so we packed up and headed out to the Family Museum. What a much-needed break from playing at home!
Typically I would have a rough plan for the summer, but at this time I do not. A few days ago we created our summer bucket list, so it is time for me to pencil in these activities (and some of my own) into our calendar. I fear if I don't do this, summer will have passed us by and too much of our time will have been spent at home while I try to keep up with the household duties.
We need to go out and have some fun! I want to enjoy this special time with my kids and explore our area. I think it is so fun for them to come up with ideas and love to see their excitement when one of their activities is on the agenda for the day. I just pray my four darling children cooperate and don't put me over the edge in the process! Going anywhere alone with all of them is always an adventure. I am hoping another year of growth will make this summer a bit easier (this may be some serious wishful thinking!).
Does your family create a bucket list? If not, you should give it a try. It's a lot of fun!
