Summer Bucket List 2015

summer bucket list 2015

I know summer is over a month away, but I like to think ahead and I also like/love to make lists! Below are some ideas that I would like to do with the kids over the summer. A lot of these activities are home based. We tend to stay home more than venture out, so these activities are perfect for us. Also on the list is a few local spots that I want to check out. I also would like for the girls to continue their learning through occasional reading, science projects, art projects, and maybe even a few math things. I will see how it goes, as it is summer and I don’t want to pressure them. We all need a break from school too. Enjoy!

    Hi, Katie! I just discovered your blog and podcast…thoroughly enjoying it. I, too, homeschool and noticed that you are considering Teaching Textbooks. We absolutely love it, and it’s taken a huge burden off of my shoulders. The lessons are short and concise with a lot of review. Wishing your family the best, as we are on a similar journey.
