I have loved seeing families’ bucket lists on Facebook! They make me wish that bucket lists were popular when my kids were little!
(Well, I guess we made our own Bucket List with our Summer School Goals—oh, my kids loved those!)
And I love having fun as a family…I mean, honestly, we were a FUN family. And we still go to Disney World as a family every five years!!! (Thanks to Plexus, we are moving that up to every three years!)
But for this post, I would like to propose a different bucket list than the traditional, fun, memory-making bucket list. It is the Summer Family Bucket List to Grow.
Summer. That care-free time when we make a list of fun activities—and a list of good intentions for teaching and growing. To be sure that the summer doesn’t pass you by with unmet goals and regrets, I wanted to apply some of our goal setting information to your summer!
If you have heard us talk about goal setting for your family, you know that we encourage you to make your goals like this:
On my recent podcast episode for the last Wednesday of December, I actually talk about the Daily Duties page first. I did that because I truly believe that Daily Duties are what make us the most successful in parenting, homeschooling, home management, and even entrepreneurship.
When I used to buy planners completely made up for me from the office supply store, I never really had a good handle on those week-at-glance pages. I found the clock ones, those with half an hour increments of time down the page, to be very unhelpful to me as a homeschooling mom. Now I still find them equally unusable as a work-at-home mom. I simply don’t have those appointments every thirty minutes.
In a podcast episode here, I describe in detail about how to use your planner/calendar to get more done in the upcoming year. I thought I would also include some information here at the blog in print format to help you out.
