Summer bucket list

On the first day of the summer holidays we all sat down as a family and talked about what we wanted to do over the summer. These are fun things, ‘wants’ rather than ‘needs’. We compiled these into a bucket list of activities to squeeze into the 7 weeks of summer. I wonder if you can guess which family member suggested each item!

I am writing them down here for reasons of accountability! Items with a * we have already ticked off the list. There does seems to be quite a few stars, so at the midpoint of the hols we are not doing too badly. I have noticed that the kids have more *’s than the adults so maybe we need to prioritize our wants for a change!
