Here is what I wanted to do this summer:
- Pick blueberries and strawberries with my boys. I remember what strawberries taste like in the field, and it's not anything like those red monstrosities in the supermarket. Picked Blueberries and Raspberries and they were delicious!
- Go to the swimming pool three or four times a week and make some new friends from our neighborhood. We went to the pool at least three times a week up until the middle of August, when we hit a cold spell and would rather go biking. We made some new acquaintances, and we'll see how the friendships develop.
- Get Buddy swimming lessons. Done. He did great and loved it.
- Help with Vacation Bible School at our church. I got put on the snack committee and I think I can totally do that. Done. We all enjoyed it.
- Read and blog about at least one chapter book a week. Done. I reviewed over 20 books between the end of June and the end of August.
- Work on my writing. I mean read writer's texts, practice the craft, keep a writer's notebook, polish some pieces and submit. Done. See the writing label in my sidebar.
- Print photos of my kids and catch up on scrapbooks. Worked on this but didn't finish.
- Print photos matched with my haiku and make a book of them. Worked on this but didn't finish.
- Keep up with weeding and watering (especially the potted plants). More or less. The rest of the yard and garden dried up but I kept the pots watered.
- Get Buddy music lessons (Suzuki violin? Any suggestions or tips?). Still working on this.
- Learn to make gluten free fig newtons with our home grown figs. Done and they were GREAT!
- Research library schools and make a plan to finish my degree. Still getting around to this one.
- Find time to relax: play, laugh, watch and listen. Done!! I did the best on this one.
- Learn how to work with the school website; update library and class project pages. Plan to assist teachers with this next year. Done. A little more tweaking to do, but pretty much done.
You did much better than I did. BTW, Suzuki violin is great. That's how I learned many years ago.
Congratulations! I'm a big fan of the berry picking.
