Mama-on-Days: My Summer Bucket List and a FREEBIE

This is it.  It's our last summer before the big K-KINDERGARTEN.  I'll probably blink and he will be graduating from high school.  I'm alternating between being excited AND trying to figure out how old I would be, if I tried for just one more, when that child graduated.

The Biscuit is at the age where he is just starting to get a little self conscious about things he says.  But he still has some hilarious ideas.  Yesterday I asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up.  He says, "Oh.  I'm going to be a spy.  Or an artist.  Maybe I could be a spy who draws people."  I asked him what he had to do to become a spy.  He told me he thinks he needs to practice being a spy. It seems that if he can hide for 10 minutes without anyone finding him-then he's an automatically in the spy agency.

I know this summer is going to go fast-so I thought I'd write out are summer "bucket" list.  I know my analogy is a little off-but I think I can make it work by thinking of all the fun things I want to do before "summer" kicks the bucket.  

Here's a few things that I have so far:

  1. Run through the sprinkler.
  2. Start keeping cash on hand so that I can buy ice cream bars from the ice cream truck I hear roaming our neighborhood.
  3. Go on a nature scavenger hunt.  Try to catch a frog.  I'm still cool if I wear gloves when we do this, right?  
  4. Pick fresh berries, come home and make a pie.  
  5. Sit on the burlap sacks and ride the big yellow slide at the State Fair-twice.  Intellectually, I understand that the laws of physics will not allow me to fly out into space when going down slides but my brain is still pretty worried that it's a possibility.  
  6. Make a fire in our fire bowl that has been sitting in our back yard unused for years.  Make S'mores.  Sing campfire songs.  We are surrounded by neighbors-so maybe we should reconsider the campfire songs.  
  7. Go to the beach for the whole day.  Try to build the world's biggest sand castle.  Let the biscuit try to bury me.  
  8. Go to our local amusement park.  Ride the rides.  Try to win a giant stuffed animal. 
As I was writing this, I thought it might be fun to use this activity with my clients.  What do they want or wish to do in the summer.  So I made this (very literal) summer bucket list.

Thanks Mia! I'd love to hear about your bucket list. I'm not so sure about the frogs either. Maybe I'll just be really slow.
