Summer List Recap

At the beginning of the summer, Isaiah and I made a list of all of the fun things we wanted to do this summer. He was way more into it than I thought he would be- making sure we did everything and that we checked off each activity immediately after completing it.

.

A list-maker by nature, I loved how it helped me be strategic and purposeful with our days and weeks. I am looking forward to continuing this tradition year after year!

 

Here is our list:

 

1. Go to the Lake
