summer goals

School is out next week, which is not as high impact for us as it is for some; we only go 2 hours a day, 2 days a week, and our homeschool lessons will continue all summer. Nevertheless, it is time to settle on our summer goals.

1. go geocaching with the kids
2. take children strawberry and blueberry picking
3. go swimming very often
4. grow and eat lots of home-grown heirloom tomatoes
5. have my fall classes fully prepped by the end of June
6. make progress on manuscript
7. make lots of jam
8. install pavers into south flower garden
9. stay home a lot
10. get children to at least one week of VBS
11. declutter basement
12. move mill end pile out of driveway
13. continue to make own bread and yogurt
14. reconquer the north and front flower gardens
15. go to Darrington Bluegrass festival

Having a deja vu? You saw a similar summer goals list last June. And just to make sure we stay busy, here are some of our plans:

1. Dandy and My Gift are off to New Mexico later this month for a paternal family reunion.
2. We are sniffling about all fourth of July weekend as we are not able to attend a maternal family reunion in Nebraska. We will be sniffling in reasonably cool weather, however, which is a small comfort.
3. Kids are off to Narnia Day Camp in mid July.
4. Soccer VBS camp in early August.
5. Trip to California mid-August for a niece's wedding.
6. Trip to Vancouver Island in early September.

Oh, I love geocaching. I have taken my daughter out to some & she thinks the treasure hunts are so cool. Thanks for reminding me of this fun thing to do with the kids when we just want to get out of the house.

*Love your site, I just found you on blogher.

I've never been geocaching, but my kids love letterboxing. Hey, maybe we could do that today. At least we'd be in the air conditioned car for lots of the adventures! Gotta beat that 100 degree heat.I've never been geocaching, but my kids love letterboxing. Hey, maybe we could do that today. At least we'd be in the air conditioned car for lots of the adventures!

Totallyscrappy, send some of that heat to us. It is cold and rainy here, again.
