Summer Projects

Summer has come along like gangbusters with its soaring temperatures and longer hours of daylight. A perfect time for us to tackle some projects that have been calling out to be done for months. I have a long “to do” list of things that have either been met with procrastination or have fallen to the prey of neglect. I am hoping to tackle at least two or three of these a week until we head back to school full time. (We leisurely school part time during the summer tying up loose ends.)

  • Clean out the garage
  • Clean out the attic
  • Organize the classroom
  • Re-set a working schedule
  • Plan 3 months of menus to be rotated out throughout the year
  • Tackle one room in the house at a time for thorough cleanout
  • Whistle while I work to drive the kids nuts
  • Paint the upstairs bathroom
  • Paint the downstairs bathroom
  • Finish my e-books that I started a year ago that have been waiting to be done
  • Go through schoolbooks
  • Sip iced tea at leisure
  • Catch up on reading (or at least attempt to read something other than a manual)
  • Lay out next year’s lessons
  • Teach old dogs new tricks
  • Get back yard in some sort of order
  • Clean out files on computers and back up files
  • Put pictures on discs
  • Make a scrapbook of the past 5 years of school
  • Sing along off key to the songs on my IPOD
  • Make a liner with a zipper for Homeschooling with Heart tote bag so I can use it as a pocketbook
  • Sew the kids activity patches on their duffle bags
  • Pat the cat and dogs
  • Walk a mile a day
  • Eat less junk food
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables
  • Make more homemade goodies
  • Laze around when it’s too hot to do anything
  • Enjoy spending loads of time with family
  • Don’t sweat the small stuff

While this list may not be all inclusive, it gives me a place to start.

So what do you plan to do this summer?

    Just accomplishing half your list would be something. For me these days, accomplishing about three of those things would make me proud. Best wishes….and when you finish, I have a few things you could do. =)

    Cleaning the attic is NOT a summer project….too hot.

    Good luck with these tasks….ambitious?
