Ever since I read Mrs. Cowgirl’s original Summer Fun List two summers ago, I have wanted to implement one of my own – I thought the idea was completely genius! I am a huge checklist person… it just makes me so happy. Sometimes I even put things on my lists that I’ve already done just so I can get the satisfaction of checking them off! I knew I had to keep it somewhat realistic because I work full-time, and there are only so many weekends in a summer… but with summer also comes lots and lots of daylight, giving us so many more hours to do all sorts of things!
We’re only in mid-July, but we’ve already checked off practically half the things on our list. I cheated a little because some of these I knew we could probably do multiple in one day… like go to the beach and build sandcastles. I also put the date we did things as we checked them off. At the end of summer, I’ll snap a final picture as a keepsake of all the things we did (and when we did them) this summer!
I tried to mix it up a little – some of these cost money, others are completely free, still others could be done in the comforts of our own home… though I’m thinking I probably could’ve saved the create forts out of cardboard boxes for our Fall/Winter Fun List. Fall/Winter Fun List you say?? That’s right! I’m loving this list so much I want to make another one after summer’s over! Lots of ideas churning in my mind already.
