Our Summer Fun List


Well, it's official: all of the kids' schoolwork is completed for the year and we are enjoying the good ol' summertime!  That doesn't mean that learning will also take a break though.  We're still reading through our history of The Middle Ages, there will be different computer programs the kids will work a few days a week to keep their skills sharp, we have some new books to tackle as a family (I'm still reviewing), and there's LOTS of reading going on.

But the getting-up-and-starting-school-first-thing is taking a break for a while.  And that is nice :)

Yesterday I asked my family what were some things on their "summer bucket list" (being the list-maker that I am) and we all came up with quite a few.  Now we may not get around to all of them, but I can guarantee we're going to try!

So here's our list, in no particular order:


  • go swimming...a lot
  • having a pillow fight
  • do lots of crafts and projects
  • play in the sprinkler
  • paint pictures
  • watch family movies
  • go to the beach
  • play tag outside
  • eat lots of watermelon
  • make homemade ice cream
  • shoot off fireworks
  • read... a lot
  • go bowling
  • attend a pro-sports event
  • visit Holiday World
  • visit the Creation Museum again
  • grill out a lot
  • make s'mores
  • go camping
  • pick berries
  • spend lots of time in the hammock
  • have a water balloon fight
  • play lawn games
  • visit the farmers market often
  • have marshmallow gun fights
  • take lots of "field trips"
  • write letters to friends
And that's our list for now...we may be adding to it!  

Do you have a list--whether written down or just in your mind--of all the fun things you want to do this summer?
