Summer Fun List

We are six days away from summer vacation.  Can you hear the excitement in my voice?  Being a homeschooling family means that we really don't ever get a break.  We are always learning!  But we do take the summer off from our structured school day.  It really allows me to just be mom and and not deal with school stuff.  For the past several summers we have been making a list of the fun things we want to do as a family.  This all started after we realized that summer had gone by so fast and we had done so little as a family.  Because I (Bethany)  love lists, each spring we make one.  We started letting the kids add things to the list last year.  We still have not checked everything off of our list in one summer.  But it has made us more intentional about spending time together.  The big thing we noticed last year was that the kids have such simple things they want to do.

So here is our Summer 2012 list:

Go Camping
Pick raspberries
Swim in Miss Laura's pond
Go on a gator ride with Grandpa
Go on an adventure with Dad
Butcher rabbits
Go swimming at Lake Shelbyville
Go to the pool
Go fishing 
Pick Blueberries
Read the 1st 3 Harry Potter Books


  1. Can I come along on a few of those???? :)

    Seriously, what a great list! Keep us posted on how it goes!

  2. Remind me to tell you my very funny butchering rabbits story :o)

  3. Count me in in the fishing part ohh and you will need my 22 for the rabbits.
