In an attempt to be more normal

I decided to make a Summer Bucket List with the girls.

I've seen tons of them all over and even tried to make one last year, but nothing really happened from it.

So I had an idea.  I need a way to see what our options are check it off easily.

So I came up with this...

I took some cute Butterfly shaped post-its and wrote one thing to do on each one then stuck them on our huge dry erase board. 

I also used my multi-colored sharpies to try and make it even cuter. 
To be honest, I don't really care what it looks like... it's our list and it's done. 

I'm thinking that on Sundays we'll decide what we're going to do that week and when... We only have like 60 something days til school starts back up, and I think there are over 60 things to do, so we probably won't get to all of them, but having the option to pick and choose makes me happy. Also, some of them we can do more than once, so we won't be removing it from our list once it's done.  Some of these are local places and some are general things to do. Some we'll invite friends along and some we won't.
