Well I shared my summer bucket list with you on the first day of my summer break and I have neglected my little blog since, but I have been busy with my little family! We have spent lots of time together this summer and it has been wonderful. So here is my update on how I did with my list:
My Summer 2016 Bucket List
We only got to go once, but it was lots of fun!
We went and had a wonderful trip! It was so much fun to see the excitement on her face. She loved it and definitely worth the trip!
3) clean out my closet
Oops! This didn't exactly get done this summer! :( Hopefully I will get to it during the fall.
We did get to meet her again and it was FABULOUS!! She is such a nice Southern lady! I bought her new book and she signed it for me which was a great treat as well!
I did this on the first week of summer vacay and it looks so much better now that everything is organized again!
We did get to go to the beach several times this summer (living only 45 minutes away has its advantages!). Miss M loved playing in the sand and jumping from the waves. Neither of us are fans of swimming in the salt water though!
Actually I started on this one before school got out and was able to finish it pretty early in the summer which left lots of time for playing and doing fun things as a family!
I got a lot of summer reading done as well. Here are some of the books I read this summer:
- Finding Noel by Richard Paul Evans
- Grace by Richard Paul Evans
- The Summer Girls by Mary Alice Monroe
- The Summer Wind by Mary Alice Monroe
- The Summer's End by Mary Alice Monroe
- A Lowcountry Wedding by Mary Alice Monroe
- The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe
- Swimming Lessons by Mary Alice Monroe
- Beach House Memories by Mary Alice Monroe (I'm actually finishing this one up now!)
I hope you have all had a wonderful summer as well! I have been back at work for a week now and tomorrow morning bright and early I start the new school year with my 2nd graders. Wish me luck!
