This is the much anticipated day! It is our last day of school with students! Teachers still have to work Friday and Monday but the 2017-2018 and my 24th year of teaching are OVER! I had a great year over all. I will definitely miss my students over the summer. I tried some new things and got some positive feedback. You’ve got to love a job where you get a do over every year, right?
I thought today would be perfect for sharing my summer bucket list. I had never heard of this before other bloggers started sharing theirs a few years ago. I liked this and started making my own each summer.
Why have a bucket list? I think it’s hard to remember what you want to accomplish and experience without a list to keep you on track. This list makes things more intentional. I actually try to do a bucket list for each season. I do one for fall, one for winter, and usually by spring I forget about it, but I do one for summer. I tend to have things that I want to do as a family, as a couple, and by myself. I try to include decluttering projects, self – improvement items, learning about something, and just plain summer fun so that I feel that I get the most out of the season.
I don’t usually check everything off. In fact, by August I don’t care any more and I just want to meditate in the AC. Ha!
