Summer Fun Commitment

Typically when I blog, it’s because something has touched my heart, tickled my funny bone or challenged me to be better. And I write about these things to share the journey and hopefully pass along some of the inspiration.

Having said that, today’s post and future posts with similar titles are totally for me and for the purpose of accountability.

I want to look back on this summer and say I did something. That Dom had fun. That I had fun. And that Sesame Street was not our default entertainment each day.

So last night I started something that I’ve had great intentions of doing for quite some time. I made a summer schedule for Dominic and myself.

It includes activities like:

  • Going to the zoo. We have an annual pass.
  • Going to the library, which we did yesterday!
  • Playing in our backyard and in our new pool! (great deal at Wal-Mart for $20!!)
  • Going to one of the many local parks and splash pads.
  • Play dates.
  • Lazy days.
  • Work days (I’ve been planning for next school year).

I’ve actually gone through and designated an activity (and by activity I mean zoo, playdate, etc) for every week day. Whether we do that specific activity or not will be dictated more on a weekly basis as schedules fill up with this or that. But at least I’ve got SOMETHING on the calendar that I can use as a guideline and point of accountability to prevent our weeks from going by with nothing to show for it.

And as a way of making sure I follow through with this, I’m sharing this commitment with you my 3 devoted readers and my multiple ghost readers {I don’t know who you are but I know you read my stuff! 😉 }

I also feel that it will serve as a great log of our fun summer!

My commitment is to weekly post about what we did that week. Nothing flashy. Just the facts and hopefully some pictures.

So. {lifting a tall glass of sweet tea in toast}

To a fun activity filled summer!



Feel free to share your summer goals in the comments section. I’d love to hear what you’ve got planned.

And pretty please hold me accountable to my goals!
