This year Elysse is in a new elementary school and Diego started middle school and both are traditional 9-month schools. Before that they both were in a year-round school that had 3- week track breaks throughout the year. To say they are excited for this summer break is a bit of an understatement. With being in the middle of buying a new house and moving, I'll admit last summer was kinda lame. We kept our list small and simple! This year we decided to go all out!!! Since I'm scheduled to run 17 races in 2017 (YIKES!!) the kids thought it'd be fun to keep the same theme going for our family summer bucket list. I think this may be our biggest and most ambitious summer bucket list to date! So, without further ado, here is our epic summer bucket list for 2017:
Each year we always find a fun way to display our list so we don't forget what our plans are! Plus, it's so much fun to see all the fun we've had and all the fun activities we still have to do. This year we wrote each activity on a note card and hung them along our dining room wall. We then plan on taking a photo with our fuji instax camera and trade it out for the note card as we do each activity. We hope that by Labor Day, we'll have zero note cards and a wall full of fun photos of our summer adventures!
What fun activities and adventures do you have planned for this summer? If your stumped, get your family together and work on your own family summer bucket list this weekend! I promise it will make this summer one to remember.
