Summer Goals

Today is the first day of summer vacation for us! School ended yesterday (for Kate - lucky Jack gets to do some work over the summer to make up for some less than stellar homeschool weeks), and we are looking forward to a few months of fun. But still like to have a loose guide as to what I'd like to accomplish over the next few months (note that there is no spring goal review... I just did "eh" on most of it).


  • Maintain Mvelopes - ongoing - doing well so for this year
  • Review midyear finances review - beginning of July
  • Participate in neighborhood garage sale - the end of June - I'd like to do a major declutter in every room of the house - I've even made a June calendar schedule to declutter all rooms
  • Set up backyard hammock - already ordered!
  • Plant summer garden - mostly done except for basil (still a bit early here to put it out)
  • Plant lavender and rhubarb plants
  • Trim back lilac bushes
  • Plant front porch containers - plants and potting soil purchased, just need to do it
  • Plant around front tree - sorta cheating because this is already DONE!
  • Plan a second eating area in backyard - we've outgrown our outdoor dining table with guests
  • Figure out what to do to deter wasps
  • Plant window box flowers
  • Clean out homeschool room and potentially set up as a sitting room
  • Learn to use the new grill/smoker
  • 2016 Reading Challenge - 32 of 60 goal books read - plan to get a lot of summer reading done!
  • Complete 3 quilts this summer - hope to have tops completed and quilted so I can hand sew the bindings on our road trip
  • Work on daily routines
  • Complete Upstream Field Guide class - I got it in a package deal
  • Sign up for my goat cheese making class
  • Blog more...
  • Plan 1:1 dates with kids at least every other week
  • Don't go insane driving them everywhere they need to be all summer! :)
  • Join library summer reading program
  • Bake bread at least weekly (I really want to be doing this but always forget!!)
  • Make list of favorite summer meals
  • Maintain weekly Pilates class
  • Try a new yoga class
  • Maintain 2x/week bootcamp workout
  • Choose, train and run a 5K
  • Do the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge - we always love trying the new recipes - won't be able to do all 30 days because of vacation, but we'll do our best
  • Make and complete summer hiking bucket list
  • Make and complete summer restaurant bucket list
  • Make and complete summer outing bucket list
  • Go camping!
