summer bucket list 2015

it's that time of year again: summer.  the time when everything slows down and we can really take a deep breath and just relax.  the time when we try to suck the very marrow from the bones of life, enjoying every fleeting second, taking advantage of the extra time together, and making adventures and memories that will shape each of us for the future.  here at our house, we do this by making a bucket list with things we hope to accomplish during the summer.  we don't always get them all done, but it gives something to aspire to. and we have a blast.

in fact, we've already begun, by making a mix cd that is meant to be part of the soundtrack of our summer.  here it is:

we went with a jungle book theme, because we just got done reading kipling's "jungle book" at bedtime.  we chose songs that each of us like, and some ones i thought the kids would enjoy listening to in the van.  it's fun to get them to listen to some other music, to appreciate all sorts of styles, and to rock out together in an air-guitaring, head-banging frenzy.

and so the summer begins...
