I'm joining Natalie & Rachelle over at What The Teacher Wants for their fun Summer Bucket List linky party! I've been on break for 2 weeks now and I must admit thinking there is less than 8 weeks left of of my summer break gives me a pit in my stomach - there is so much I want to do!
School: I've been wanting to come up with my own alphabet chart/chant with motions for each letter for a while now. What I use now is a combination of several different well known chants and I've made up quite few letters up myself. My goal is to make a matching chart and large alphabet display to match the chant I use each day.
Personal: We hope to sell the condo we are rapidly outgrowing and buy a house this upcoming spring. I know I will need to purge a lot of stuff at that point to make our house pretty for all those showings so I'm hoping to get a head start and work my way through the basement and some closets. We had our 2nd baby boy last summer and we are stopping with 2 children so I have lots of baby stuff to get rid of!
I want to try one brand new recipe each week! I tend to get into a rut during the school year and just go with what I know is quick and easy. Hopefully I can find a few new recipes to add to the rotation!
I have such a hard time getting new products ready to upload during the school year-teaching first grade with 2 little ones at home is exhausting and I end up falling asleep before I get to work on anything! I already have finished and uploaded one new thing over the summer (My Reward Coupons) so hopefully I'll get to make a few new products and update a few old ones!
Fun: This summer is all about my boys! In the 2 weeks I've been off, we've gone to the zoo, had a picnic at a park with a lake, visited a few new playgrounds, and gone to the pool several times.
We are heading to Ocean Isle Beach in North Carolina in mid-July. We last went 3 years ago when my oldest was just 1, so I'm excited to go back with a 4 year old and a 1 year old!
Last, the school year sometimes seems like non-stop go, go, go-so I am going to enjoy every minute of down time we can get this summer!!
