Summer goals

So much to do, so little time. There is no way we can do everything but here are a few of the things we think would be fun to do this summer:

2. Visit Jason (Sam's college friend who lives in New Jersey).
3. Visit Libby (family friend from Mesa who is currently living in NYC).
4. Go to Hershey Park

What a great list! Should "cut my hair" be included? (I'm firmly in the cut-it camp. :-) Change is so freeing.)

I hope we get to do some of those things on your list with you!

The Host is on my summer reads to-do list too...I'll let you know how I felt about it if I get around to reading it...the book is gathering dust. :(

I love lists like these, but I haven't made one in awhile. I think part of me says, "You know you're not REALLY going to do all of that," so I don't. I should be better at that though.

I did so much of that as a kid (Poconos, Crayola Factory, Hershey Park) and they are all worth it I promise.

And muhlenberg college, are you planning on going to grad school?

Goose Girl is a great book. I'm actually in the middle of reading it again ;) I really like it though it is aimed more for young adult fiction I still enjoy a little fantasy/adventure ;)

Ellie - I added "cut hair" to the list. I'm not sure if I am going to get to it this summer though! I hate it a little less now.
