Chalkboard Summer Bucket List 2017

This summer bucket list tradition is going FIVE years strong! I've had this done for many weeks, but just getting around to posting about it! We are so busy during the school year and having down time in the summer is so special and important to us. I don't over schedule the kids in camps, we sleep in, we stay up late, we hang with friends, we plan fun things, and most importantly we spend quality time together. My kids are now 8 & 9 (gasp!) and they are at the most fun ages. I swear it gets more and more fun with them every year. Our list changes year to year, always trying to discover new spots and things to try. We heart KC!
We love our chalkboard wall. It was one of the first things I added in our new home. It's a place for inspiration and daily reminders. And in the summer months, gives us a blueprint for all the things we want to see/do. This chalkboard wall has inspired a few friends to make their own too!
We won't get to everything on this list, but the kids sure want to try! I think they forget that laundry still needs done, groceries still need bought, and the lawn still needs to be mowed! Everyday they look at the list and try to see what the can get mom to do - ha!
We've already knocked a few things off the list!
No big travel plans this summer since we went a big family trip in February, but Steve and I are sneaking away together for a week and the we will go to Chicago as a family this summer to visit family and explore the city.
I thought the quote at the top of the chalkboard was appropriate for summer. I don't like hearing the word "bored". My kids know better. :)
Summers always seem to fly by, but we intend to make the days count!
I hope you have some fun things planned this summer! We only get 18 summers with our kids and I'm about halfway done with mine (especially since my kids are so close in age). Let's make the most of everyday! xo
