Ummm…..summer starts in 4 weeks over here! Ca-ray-zay! While I was sprucing up the deck, I cleaned up the potting bench too. When the kids got home from school I had them help me make our 2012 summer list. Last year was the first year we made a summer list, and the kids loved it so much I thought it would be a fun tradition to continue. Plus, it gives me some direction and ideas of what I can do to keep them busy, entertained, and not driving me crazy for the next 3 months. 😉 Yes, it’s a win – win!
Any guesses who added “sit and relax” to the list? Ha! I seriously doubt that will get checked off; what do you think? I also added “build a fairy garden”, and the kids were on board. I think it will be a really fun project for us to do together. I’ve started pinning some ideas and can’t wait to get started.
I found these little metal pots at Marshalls for $2.99 each.
I’m just slightly obsessed with them.
I am so glad I pulled this old work bench out of the garage last summer. It works so well as a potting bench and really brightens up our patio area. It also doubles as a buffet for entertaining outdoors.
For all the deets on how I repurposed some old cabinet doors to create these chalkboard shutters check here.
They really are the perfect spot for our summer list, and I’m looking forward to crossing things off one by one.
Have you made a summer list?
Here’s a recap of what we managed to cross off this list and you can check out all the other lists we’ve made in the past!
Have a great weekend! Next week I’ll be participating in Derby Week over at The 2 Seasons. It’s going to be all kinds of horse-lovin’-Kentucky-goodness, and I’m thrilled they asked me to participate!
