Here are the goals my kids and I came up with:
Have some friends and their families over for dinner
Visit some parks we've never been to before
Ride Boppa's horses
Do a Family Movie Night
Go to the Circus
Ansley, CC and Diana, Heidi, Eli, Stella and
Celeste, Carston, and Dylan
The MOST IMPORTANT goal of our summer is to get into the Word of God. No matter who you are or what your responsibilities, it is always a fight to make God's Word a priority and you have to make the time or it won't happen. I have seen how easily even church activities and homeschool studies can crowd out family Bible time. So....here is what our family is doing to make sure that doesn't happen. If nothing else happens on our Summer Bucket List, I want to make sure that this stuff happens:
We didn't do it every Friday morning but we did meet together about 5 times this summer.
Best part of my summer! I'm so blessed by the ladies in our Bible Study group!
This was one of Josiah's goals for Ali. I know she said she was reading her Bible each day this summer but wasn't remembering to look up her verses for study.
Make a Gold Rush Days lapbook
Make a lapbook of their choice
The Secret at Pheasant Cottage and
by Patricia St. John
Start the Christian Heritage series by Nancy Rue
We ended up reading lots of library books and fewer chapter books this summer.
Not every goal was met, but we made some serious dents in our goals for summer fun! I hope you all had a wonderful summer!
