In my mind, summer is nearly here. Although, Dylan isn’t out of school until mid-June, June feels like summer and that is when we’ll be kicking off our summer fun together. I’ve been working on putting together a list of things that I want to do with the kids (and hubby) in the next three months as well as marking them in our calendar. Dylan is curious, creative, fun, messy and so many other wonderful qualities but mostly he has so much energy and I find that on the days that I plan out, it not only goes much smoother but it can be a whole lot of fun.
I could list out the 50 items on my bucket list but you could also just do an internet search for ‘Summer bucket list’ to get a ton of ideas. So instead, I will tell you how I am organizing it all and some of the activities to come which I will be blogging about this summer.
I came across a link to The Confident Mom in an advertisement in an email newsletter from Money Saving Mom. Curious, I purchased and downloaded Susan’s (aka The Confident Mom) calendar packed filled with ideas for the summer. She has some fantastic ideas for staying organized, links to some fantastic blogs (some that I have been to before) as well as three and a half months packed of things to do during the summer. I’m the type of person who loves my google calendar so that is where I keep all my activity ideas. I have been combing through Susan’s ideas as well as many other blogs, Pineterst, Chamber of Commerce for our area and other websites that I frequent to come with lots of fun for our summer.
When I use an idea that I got elsewhere, I will be linking back to their site (as I hope you will you enjoy one of my ideas!) With that being said, we will be kicking off summer this week, so please check back to see what fun activities we will be doing this summer!
