52 Lists: Summer Goals

We are taking about a month break from schooling while we are home in Louisiana. We will be headed to North Dakota the first of June, and we will start school back the second week of June. We like schooling through the summer!

The list I'm supposed to make this week is my summer goals. So, here goes!

  • be more active with my kids by playing games such as tag, hide and seek, basketball, baseball, and kickball
  • grill as much as possible - it's so healthy, yummy and keeps from heating up the kitchen
  • make homemade ice cream - my kids love it
  • nature study - drawing and writing in our journals, going on nature walks, bird-watching
  • fresh fruits and vegetables - it's so fun stopping at produce stands on the side of the road, and I have a feeling there will be some in ND
  • sprinklers, slip-and-slides, and water balloons
  • 3 birthday parties for my boys - 2 in June and 1 in July
  • plenty of library visits - the one in ND should be in walking distance from where we will be staying
  • arts and crafts - I'm really trying to do more of these with my kids
  • try new recipes - sometimes I feel like I cook the same things over and over; I'd like to try one new recipe a week {at the least}
  • finish homeschool planning - I'm pretty well finished, but I still have my preschooler's curriculum to finish writing and planning {I'm having TOO much fun with it}
What are your summer goals?

Linking up with:


  1. Ohhh...yay to sprinklers! We don't have any grass area so sprinklers at our house is mud puddles.

    ...and this post didn't link up again. Let me know if there is something amiss on my link-up. I saw this come through on my reader but not on the link up.

    1. Hmmm. When I linked up, i went back to your blog an it was there for me! But now I see it's not. Wonder what the problem is?

    2. I'll try to link it up again for you.

  2. I tried one new recipe a week one time. I don't like cooking that much so I got overwhelmed. I might try for once a month though...maybe I can handle that. haha!

  3. A great list of goals! I'm totally envious of you being just walking distance from the library. Enjoy North Dakota!
