The Ultimate Summer Checklist
When I was growing up, Summer was one of my favorite seasons! I think I loved it so much because it was a break from school and I got to swim every day. Where I grew up (and where I currently live) gets VERY hot during the Summer. It’s no Arizona heat, but we have 100+ degree weather for several months. The heat lasts until October and by that time, we are soooo over the heat that we can all be a little grumpy.
So, in an attempt to go back to my childhood anticipation of Summer, I wanted to create a Summer checklist for you!
Since I am expecting a little person in July, I don’t know how many Summer things I will be participating in. But, if I were able to do whatever I wanted this Summer, these are the things I would want to make sure I did!
Swim in a swimming hole
Eat popsicles poolside
Get a pedicure
Take a weekday off and spend it at the pool or wherever you can find water
Read two novels
Make homemade ice cream
Have weekly BBQ’s with friends
Go on a roadtrip
Make sun tea
Bake a peach pie
Go fruit picking (we have local farms where we pick blueberries and peaches!)
Buy lemonade from the neighbor kids
Go to the Farmer’s Market
Watch the sunrise
Since I will be busy taking care of a newborn for the second half of the Summer, will ya help me out and check some of these items off the list?
Summer should be a time to take off from work, stay up late, have salty hair, and eat way too much watermelon.
I hope you are able to soak up this time with your family and friends! And if you need help preparing for vacation, I wrote a post about how I prepared to take time off for our Hawaii trip. It might help you find more peace during your vacation!
