Summer Bucket List

I am joining in on the fun for the Summer Bucket List.  My kiddos and I create a "Summer Fun List" for each summer.  We hang it on the fridge and cross items off as we do them.  Some are simple like play at the park and some are more exciting like a vacation.  Once, I saw this linky I knew it was right up my alley!!!  :)

{1} Anniversary trip with my hubby....We will be married for 10 years this summer and the last BIG trip we took by ourselves was our honeymoon 10 years ago.  We plan on going to Chicago for a long weekend to relax and have some fun.

{2}  READ.....I love to read and my kids and I usually end up at the library at least once a week.  They always participate in our local library's summer reading program.  I love sitting out on my deck with the sunshine and a good book!

{3} I really want to color coordinate my classroom a little better.  Here is the color scheme I thinking of doing.  Haven't decided 100% for sure yet though.

{4}  I plan on creating some new things for classroom inspired by Pinterest.  {Click on the images to head to my pins.}

{5}  I WILL be organizing my two closets in my classroom!!

{6}  Shopping....both for myself and for my classroom.  :)

Today we had our zoo field trip.  The kids had a blast!  Here are a few pictures of our day.

Last, but not least I need to pick a winner a for my birthday giveaway.  Congrats goes to.....

  3. Amanda,
    I LOVE those crate seats. They would be great in the classroom. I keep wondering when I am going to stop with the new Pins and actually do some more of the neat things I already pinned! Hmmm. :)
    We used to go to the zoo, but we haven't been able to go on field trips the last 2 years with budget cuts. :( That was always such a favorite! Glad you had fun!
