2011 Summer List

I've seen other cute, crafty, ambitious mothers make these "to do" lists for the last couple of years, but honestly never gave much thought to making one for our family. Because let's face it. I'm pretty much the most un-fun mom ever. But as I saw them this year, it struck me that without a list, this summer very well could pass us by in a haze of chemo and just getting by. I really don't want that to happen. Not to mention I remembered how excited the kids were to make up a daily "to do" list when Rory, Camden, and I were home together the year before Camden started school. Oh, yes, I really made a list every day that included things like breakfast, nap, puzzles, lunch, etc. So, anyway, here's our list for the summer. It's not extremely adventurous, but the kids are excited and it will make us be a little more intentional about our time together this June and July.

I love this idea! I am going to sit down with my 13 yr. old and make a list. I work fulltime so sometimes it is hard to find a way to get summer fun into the schedule. This really challenges me to be creative. Thanks!
