2013 Family Summer Bucket List

This summer I am off work because of Maternity leave.  This time I have at home I plan to be well spent.  I want to improve myself, my house hold, offer fun activities and enrichment activities for Alayna, and really connect with my husband since a new baby in the household can drastically alter the dynamics.

I’ve made a list of 100 goals for this Summer and I will edit and cross off the ones we complete as it happens.  Some of meant just for me.  Some are meant for just Alayna.  Many are for Alayna and I to do together, some are for us as an entire family, and then a few are just for my husband and myself.
