okay, okay, so its been nearly three weeks since i last posted, but i've been kind of busy and i have a bonafide, legitimate excuse: WE MOVED!!!
we are now residents of happy valley, in the state college area, and we are loving our new home, neighborhood, and church and community, but all these changes take some time for adjustment! so we are getting there, and really just enjoying the process and all the new-ness.
however, in the meantime, summer marches on, and i realized that i never got to share our annual summer bucket list, so here it is. it is a bit smaller than usual this year, because we knew we wouldn't be able to do as much with a major move and all the packing/unpacking involved. still, we want to make sure we live as fully and vibrantly as possible as a family this summer, taking advantage of the extra time with the kids, and enjoying the adventure together.
as you can see, we went with a "constitution" theme for our list this year, since we knew that one of the highlights of our summer would be our trip to washington d.c. it may be a bit difficult to read, but it includes some of our annual standards, like ice cream for dinner (which we did last night), make a summer mix cd (done...awesome), and do an art project; as well as some items particular to this particular summer, like go to music camp, join a new library, and unpack all our earthly possessions, just to name a few. so far we have done 7 out of 21, so we'd better get busy!
