Three More Weeks: Not Too Late For a Summer Bucket List

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven….” Ecclesiastes 3:1

By: Jennifer Mullen

Kerri’s post What’s on Your List? inspired us to create our own bucket list at The Mullen House. (Have I mentioned that I benefit from this blog as much or more than our readers. 🙂 ) My daughter had watched Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer which inspired her to make our list into a board game.  (For those of you who have seen the movie, we even had to include “find bigfoot” which we did at the ballpark as our local minor league team’s mascot is a Sasquatch named Strike,)

Most of the local families have about three weeks before school starts.  That is plenty of time to make some great memories! It is not too late to make a bucket list to end your summer with a bang.

Below were some ideas that we came up with for our family to ensure that we have a summer to remember.   If you can have other ideas, please add to it. If you have made a list, add a picture of it to our Facebook page.
