Summer Family Bucket List

A summer family bucket list is one way that I try to be intentional about making memories with our children.

Each season has its own unique things that we always try to do. Making a bucket list of them is a great way to keep your goals visible.

The pandemic has made the last few years harder, and we have had to get more creative in some ways, but spending quantity time is important because you never know when those quality time moments will happen.

Making Memories

This summer we will be adjusting to life with a new little one, so , while I am aiming high as always, I do not know how much of this we will get done, but we will be making memories with our new little one either way. I know that I do want to be intentional about making memories with the children.
