The summer is coming to a close. Of course, it’s still a million degrees here on the surface of the sun where I live, but September always feels like fall to me. Raptor went back to school at the beginning of August. A starts 1st grade this week and E goes back to preschool soon. In other news, RaptorDad started a new job and he’s now working out of the house for the first time since before Raptor was born. It’s been a bit of an adjustment for all of us, but we’re focusing on making our family time really count. It’s been good.
I also figured it was time to wrap up the summer goals and make some new ones for the fall! I loved having these. Whenever I was at a loss for what to do I would see what we hadn’t checked off yet and go from there. So how’d we do?
Local Pools (3/3)
3. Local Splashpads (3/4)
Vacation with Friends
12. Children’s Museum (1/2)
14. Parks (3/5)
19. Birthday Pictures
Rocking Birthday Party
We pretty much did everything! I’m not in love with her birthday pictures, hence not checking them off, but they’ll do. We didn’t go to as many splash pads as we thought, but we did go swimming all the time. And you know what? Swimming is way more fun (and less hot!) than a splash pad so I’m just fine with that. I’m moving the zoo and the second children’s museum over to the Fall Bucket List. And the parks? What was I thinking. Summer in Texas is not the time to explore new parks.
Now I need ideas for the fall! The way our schedule works, it makes the most sense to have our fall list go from the beginning of September through the end of December. Suggestions? I’m working on a list, but I’d love more ideas. :)
