Last month–at the beginning of summer–we wrote a summer manifesto of sorts, identifying various things we wanted to do this summer. Bennett and Adelaide helped us create the list.
With summer almost half over, I thought it might be a good time to review the list and see how we’ve done.
:: play at a bouncey house
:: go to grandma and grandpa’s house
:: have a playdate with friends
:: go canoeing
:: go camping in India
:: go camping in the mountains
:: go fishing
:: go to river
:: build a chicken coop (we built a tree fort instead)
:: go swimming
:: ride in grandpa’s motorboat
:: go kayaking
:: go sailing
:: eat ice cream (I’ve lost count on the number of times this has happened)
:: watch fireworks
:: attend concert in the park
Margie and I were recently lamenting the lack of camping this summer. But, really, we’ve done a lot. Not included on the list are two trips. A week long trip Ashland, Oregon and a two week trip to Michigan. With the time required for those trips, it’s really no wonder that no camping has occurred (or will be occurring). All in all, we’ve done a fairly good job of fulfilling our summer wishes.
Here’s to enjoying the rest of summer and fulfilling a few more!
