Summer Family Adventures
Looking for a way to organize your summer goals, check out our Summer Family Adventures. Each day, during the the week, we have an academic goal, life skill or sports activity. Weekends are reserved for a fun family adventure and chosen from our families Summer Bucket List.
Here is our family "Bucket List" for the summer

Each month we will have a different themed adventure map illustrated by my husband. Weekly projects will be outlined on the map and detailed on the blog This month, he crated a silly snake that will later be used for a fun game board.
