Summer Bucket List: How Did We Do?

We’re well into September at this point, which means summer 2017 is officially in the books. I’d say we had a pretty nice first summer in Indiana. And we made pretty good progress on the summer bucket list, with only three items remaining. Here’s a look at some of our summer fun. We picked strawberries, […]

The Summer Bucket List 2017

The official first day of summer may be a few weeks away. But since Sophie finished school on June 1, we’re in full-fledged summer mode and checking off items on the 2017 Summer Bucket List! We’ve been making these summer lists since 2010 when Sophie was only 2-years-old! I hope she’ll continue making the summer […]

The Summer Bucket List 2016

It’s officially summer around these parts. Sophie’s been out of school about a week now. It was definitely a bittersweet, milestone last day of school. We said goodbye to the school community I’ve come to love over the last three years. I feel so fortunate Sophie had such a great start to her elementary school […]

Goodbye School … Hello Summer Bucket List

Someone told me that as we (adults) get older, time passes by so much quicker. When I was young and when Sophie was a toddler, I always thought of time as a slow process with the days and months inching by. But now that I have a daughter who is actively experiencing life and going […]

Hello Summer!

Well, it’s happened! Sophie is no longer a kindergartner. It’s hard to believe she’ll be a 1st grader in the fall. But before I start crying about how she’s growing up, I’m going to enjoy the next few months of SUMMER! I feel like shouting from the rooftops a la Olaf in Frozen … It’s […]

Summer Loving Happened So Fast!

With Labor Day Weekend upon us and Sophie starting kindergarten on Tuesday, in my mind, summer is officially over. It seems like just yesterday we were creating our Summer List and embarking on a relaxing vacation. While both Sophie and I are ready for a change of pace, we really had a great summer. It was relaxing, […]

The Benefits of Boredom

I made a bold move at the start of this summer, which was NOT to fill the entire summer with daily camps and activities for Sophie. I was going to take a chance (on both our sanity) and see what would happen without every minute being scheduled. I was talking with some fellow moms recently […]

The Summer List 2013

Summer is here! Although the season just officially started, Sophie and I have been on “summer vacation” since the first week of June when she finished preschool! That’s right, my little Sophie is no longer a preschooler and will be entering kindergarten in just over two months! Since her last day of school, we’ve been […]

The Summer List: How Did We Do?

Since we’re now officially into the fall season, I decided to close out summer and show you the outcome of our 2012 Summer List. Here was our list when school ended in June. As you can see, we didn’t accomplish everything and we made a few adjustments. Overall it was a great summer! Here are […]
