My summer vacation started officially on Saturday but I don't consider vacation actually starts until you get to sleep in on that first workday morning. Today was my first sleep in day....ahhhhh.
How are you planning to spend your summer? I always make a mental bucket list in my head at the beginning of holidays but decided to share it with the world this year. Here are my must dos this summer.
~ Sleep in ~We are an early start school so sleeping in until 8:00 AM is a real treat.
~ Read ~I don't do a lot of reading for fun during the school year because I don't have a lot of self control when it comes to books. :) I need to keep reading when I am in the middle of a really good book and tend to neglect other important things like housework.
~ Organize and do some deep cleaning at home ~Things really start to slip in the last few months of school and everywhere I look it is staring me in the face. It is time to deal with those spaces and get my house back in shape.
~ Spend time with friends ~I want to be able to go to the movies on a weeknight, meet a friend for a coffee or sit by their pool. Just hanging out is high on my list of things to do.
~ Limit device time for my kids ~I have a teenage son and a pre-teen daughter who need to spend time away from Ipads, Iphones and computers. We will go on day trips to get away from the devices and keep everyone busy.
~ Spend time at the cottage ~We spend many of our weekends there, with and without company, and love it. My husband and I both have family where our cottage is as well. We tend to "cottage hop" over the weekends to everyone's cottage to hangout and watch our husbands do water sports and our kids tube.
~ Travel ~We also have a 40 foot RV that we will be taking down east again this summer. The plan is to travel through the US and then up to Nova Scotia. We always have an amazing time travelling in our RV.
~ Work on products for my TPT store ~I have a million ideas all swirling around in my head to work on now that I have the time. However, I have to pace myself and set an example for my kids who I am trying to limit device time with - that is a bit of a catch 22.
I hope you can relate to some of the items on my list. I would love to hear about your plans. Simply save the above image and use it on your blog when you post about your summer bucket list.
