We’re settling into our new digs fairly well, but if you look behind closed doors, things are still a mighty wreck (our office has quickly become a place to hide ugly exploding boxes — you can barely open the door to even peek inside. Eep!). It’s easy to get sucked into staying here all day working on things. Or, even worse, thinking about working on things even if you never actually empty a a single box and — whoops — there goes another beautiful summer day!
I’m determined not to waste any more of our summer days, however, as I remember what Chicago winters are like. (hint: Cold. And looooong.) So we’re taking some inspiration from Erin and creating a “To Do List” for the month of August. A summer bucket list of sorts.
I started to brainstorm on my own tonight, but I plan to sit down with P first thing in the morning and see what sort of things she’d like to do. There are the obvious ones — play in the yard, ride her Kick, go to the library — but I’m wondering if she’ll come up with anything more adventurous? If not, I’ve got a couple things in mind myself.
I’ll share our list once we have it finalized, but in the meantime — what would you put on it?
(Keep in mind I’m just one adult to two small children and we prefer stuff that is free, or at least cheap. We also have both a vehicle of our own and easy access to transit to Chicago and a taste for adventure!)
