I thought Emery and I might enjoy making a list of fun things we'd like to do this summer- a new tradition (we've been creating a lot of those recently!) We decided to school through the summer, so we aren't labeling 'back to school' as the end of the season around here. Instead, I like to look at us sneaking up on September 22nd as a great motivator to satiate our hunger of summer rituals and I'm pretty excited about it. I think it might be neat to create goals lists for each season and check things off as we accomplish them and to see how our lists change over time as our wants and desires change-or stay the same.

Emery's requests were pretty cute. Involving kids with goals or ideas is always a blast! Gray was thrilled, yelling "yeah!" while jumping up and down. Here's our summer goals list we came up with:
  • wear swimsuits in the bathtub- "swimming"
  • explore a different town- Fayetteville, We're coming for you
  • make homemade icecream
  • try out our new bubble machine
  • have a picnic in the park
  • scout for our "neighborhood deer" and her fawn
  • create more floral mandalas
  • press flowers/leaves
  • watercolor outside
  • take the teepee outdoors 
  • buy more plants
  • have a movie marathon day
  • family camping in the living room
  • try a new restaurant
  • eat at a food truck
  • buy a pet fish
  • have a dance party under the "stars" of our disco ball
Do you have any summer to-do's waiting to be checked off? what does/did your summer goals list look like? :)

I'm off to finish some last minute vacation shopping (We're going on a cruise next week! yay!) Have a great week, friends! 


  1. I love your idea for seasonal family goals! I will have to do that with my family.

    1. Thank you! Hope you have fun with it! :) It's very useful on days when the kiddos complain of boredom.
