2010 Summer To-Do List

I had been seeing these amazing Summer To-Do Lists on the blogosphere and wanted to make one for our family. The idea of making our summer more intentional inspired me to think of things I wanted to accomplish during our last summer here in Spain.

I made this canvas up about 2 weeks ago and have already crossed a few things off the list. With 9 weeks until Hudson’s arrival, our family is in high gear to do all kinds of fun things this summer. Even our friends have jumped on the bandwagon and joined in the fun.

On our Summer 2010 list:
