Ten To-Dos in June

Thanks, Mama Kat for getting me thinking…

May was all chaos with end of school activities and trying to get people to do Algebra and so forth.

It is just so thoughtful of Mama Kat to remind me that the way to get things back on track is to draw up a list of things to do, and you know, there is nothing in the world I like more than to make a list:


1) Find the forms so I can Turn in final grades.

2) Take my kids bowling, miniature golfing, and to a matinee.

3) Take my kids to a museum, a park, and a farmer’s market.

4) Attend a homeschool curriculum fair.  Because the time won’t waste itself.  Oh. Wait. Yeah, it will.

5) Hide the mess Make minor repairs on home in order to put the house on the market.

6) Schedule time to be alone.

7) Start Weight Watchers. Again.  (blah.)

9) Iron.  No, it isn’t 1957. We have been going around looking like The Grapes of Wrath.

10) Post on the blog more than twice a week.

This looks like a good first draft.

What are you doing this summer, and can you recommend more fun things to do that both 15 year-olds and 8 year-olds will enjoy?


This post is written by inspiration from Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.



  1. You’re selling the house?

  2. How about laser tag? Fun for all ages!

  3. Oh I feel your pain! I have a 14 year old daughter and a 10 year old daughter. They are just far enough apart to not be able to share friends, movies or music…and most books. You don’t want the younger one to grow up too fast, but you don’t want the older one bored out of their mind. Truly a balancing act. Loved your list, and I will have to read through more of your posts. We will be a new home school family in the fall for my youngest. 5th grade, here we come! The curriculum we chose was from Moving Beyond the Page. It is a literature and project based curriculum. Good luck with your summer.

  4. Oh, I’d LOVE to find some time to be alone too…. please tell me how we can do that!! 😉

  5. I like the idea of scheduling alone time … lots of it!

    I have an excessive love of listing, myself …

  6. That scheduling alone time is BIG. Huge. Gargantuan.

    Just. DO IT.

    It’s my favorite part of life sometimes.

I love it when you sass me. Please leave a comment.
