Our Summer Bucket List: How many summers do you have left?

My big boy broke his arm. He fell off the monkey bars
during the first week of summer. 
While he is on the mend all I can think is...
there goes summer.

And just when I was starting to freak out at the thought of summer
with no running, riding, jumping, splashing, or climbing,
the nester kindly reminded me...
How many summers do you have?

I have...

And I want to be in it.
Not rushing, or list making, or thinking about what comes next, 
but in it with these guys.

 Goals for summer: 
1. I want to teach them how to hide God's word in their heart.
That is eternal. It will never, ever leave them.

2. I want Jack to feel comfortable and confident in kindergarten.
That means we're practicing a little reading and writing each day.
With lots and lots of help and encouragement. 

3. I want to have adventures and discover what it means
 to live this abundant life in Christ together.  
I needed a little summer inspiration.

That's where my (modified for a broken arm) bucket list comes in.
So, here's the summer adventure list that we created:
Just about all ideas are borrowed or stolen from here.

And I added a little scrappy summer bunting for fun... 
because, can you ever have enough bunting?
No. The answer is no.

So, what's on your list this summer?
