Bring it on, summer!

I had my last day of school yesterday. I am not returning to work this fall (God willing!) so that I can help lead my family's transition to ministry life. The arrival of summer vacation usually brings with it pure joy, but this year, it's brought anxiety. I've never not worked. I'm always thinking about new things to do in my classroom, but I don't have a classroom anymore. It's like the breath has been knocked out of me.

So I am putting the enthusiasm I usually reserve for lesson planning into
summer activity planning for my family.
Thanks to Pinterest, I have a few cheet sheets to get the ball rolling. So far, I've found a summer bucket list, "bored jar" printable task cards, and a summer learning goal sheet.

Summer learning goal sheet:

I used the summer learning goal sheet as a template. I created my own in Pages on my iPhone and printed it off to do with Maddie. Pictures are below.

I'm not going to lie: Maddie was not thrilled about the summer learning goals. But I think if we take it one step at a time, she'll be pleased with he progress she's making.

So, what are you planning for this summer?
