Summer Goals and Adventures for 2011

Z and I have been working on our family list for the past week and we are really excited about our summer adventure plans.  It is going to be a busy summer for S with work (VERY BUSY) and so I wanted to make sure that our plans were in place so he could jump in and out whenever he can.  Like last year I hung up our list in the kitchen and Z has been putting up stickers next to the items we have done (we have already done three!!).

This is our 7th year of making these lists (S and I use to do them before kids) and I am so glad that we do.  We always find that summer so quickly and before you know it, the leaves are changing colors. These lists have helped us to make sure that we make the most out of our short New England summers.

So here is our Summer Adventure list for 2011:
