I took some inspiration from Pinterest and made a summer bucket list for our family. The first thing the hubs said was, "Amy, that's a lot of stuff." I don't think he believes we'll do it all...Just watch me!
This was also my first stab at creating anything having to do typography. I loved being able to use a ton of different fonts, and I now also see that it's not as simple as it looks. I had to think about things like not clumping too many thick or thin fonts together, the fact that a size 12 isn't the same for all fonts, lining them up (each item is in its own text box), and then there was the color! Totally should have gone with a bolder scheme because the yellow is hard to read. But it was still quite fun to try.

Some of these might require explanation, so here goes:
- PJ Day: Wear PJs all day, even if we leave the house!
- 4th of July Craft: Not sure what it'll be yet...Still need to search Pinterest. Any ideas?
- Aquarium??: Question marks are because that's my oldest daughter's reward if she poops on the potty consistently. We may or may not make that one.
- Write a Story: I used to be an English teacher, so I think this is important and will be fun. She already has her main character, a friendly orange, fat monster named Teeskypee who eats grass and ceiling fans. She described her - I asked questions like does she have hair? Is it straight or curly? Etc. - while I drew it for her. I'll have to use lots of leading questions for the story, too, but it's a start
- Blow Something Up: It's really a science experiment that you can find here.
- Make Pet Rocks: Seems random, but my oldest has been bringing home rocks since the youngest was born in March as gifts. Figured we could do something fun with them.
- Sew: I want to start teaching the 3-year old some techniques, so I'm going to make this for her.
- Yearly Interview: Here's what I'm using for that.
- Paint: I have a lot of painting projects we could do, so I'll just pick one of these.
