The last week of our summer break may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean that the summer fun is over. We still have a lot of things to cross off this years bucket list. When I decided on a large list I knew marking them all off would take some effort and work, but so far it has been totally worth it.
Here is a look at our progress.
We have marked of 5 more things since our first bucket list check in. That means we are almost half way done with 11 of 23 items finished.
I hoped to sneak this in there once a month, but the girls love to swim so much we almost always end up at the pool instead. However on one rainy afternoon I surprised the girls with a trip to the skating rink. They did so much better than the first time we went. I think we will be spending a lot more time there in the future.
Kids cook dinner night}
I couldn’t completely turn them loose, but they made about 80% or more of our dinner with no help. On the menu was black and white brownies, chili dogs, chips and peas. Not the healthiest meal but they were SO proud. Marissa immediately requested that we make this a monthly thing. I think we totally will.
Build a fort
One day I handed the girls a pile of blankets and turned them loose to build a fort. They draped one blanket over 4 chairs and called it good. So I challenged them to think BIGGER and we came up with this. I would also like to add that I may or may not have taken a really short cat nap in it while the girls were playing with something else.
Eat watermelon & spit seeds
I knew our list wouldn’t be complete without watermelon, especially seeing we have our very own watermelon patch in our garden this year. The planting, waiting, watching and waiting some more made the watermelon taste even better too. The girls were giddy when we were finally able to harvest our first two melons. It was definitely worth the wait!
We have done so many different scavenger hunts over the years. This time I wanted to think outside of our normal, so we ended up at the grocery store! It was different, cool, and so much fun. This was a HUGE hit with the girls and they really want to go back. The only problem is there aren’t to many grocery store scavenger hunt printables out there… guess I know what I need to work on making.
Y’all I think we are totally gonna finish our list!
We still have like 7 weeks to go!
How is your summer bucket list progress going?
