I know I have been seeing these around the blog-o-sphere in many different forms. We did one last year on a foam shaped bucket. This year, we used an actual bucket…
…and some clothes pins.
I picked up a 36-pack of clothespins for just a buck at the dollar store and rounded up some sharpies from around our house. Then we sat down as a family for Family Home Evening, and decided what fun things we wanted to do this summer while I wrote them down on the pins. The boys really wanted to help too. So we let them.
Uhhh…we still don’t know what Reid wrote but he felt so proud of his contribution, so we are keeping his pins as “wild cards.” :)
We were careful to not write down too many things so we can still maintain a relaxing summer attitude. This list serves mostly as a reminder to do the things we love before summer slips through our fingers; as it always seems to do.
We have already been chipping away at our list and hope to have our bucket filled with all our summer fun before school starts.
Hope you’re enjoying your summer too!
I actually have some fun things to blog this week, so I’ll see you soon! :)
