1. Summer is upon us this week in the Northern hemisphere. Tell us three things on your summer bucket list.
Three things on my summer bucket list are:
Visit Coopers Rock, WV
Spend more time outdoors, hiking.
Schedule and prepare as much of our upcoming school year as possible.
We have checked Coopers Rock off our list already. It was breathtakingly beautiful, but the sheer height made me dizzy even though I was completely safe.
The hiking part will have to wait to be checked off until fall, because I want to get as much of that done as possible.
I'm really enjoying the last part, even though it is labor intensive. It is so nice to be able to see at a glance exactly what I will need for a week of school. The library books I'll have to get, the craft supplies I'll need, and the things to do science experiments. Plus as usual all the extras I add to the curriculum in order to dig deeper.
2. Something fun you used to do as a kid in the summertime?
Summertime was busy with all the gardening and food preserving we did, but there was always some time for fun. We used to love riding down our long hill on our wagon. Summer wagon riding was more fun than sledding in winter.
3. Rooftop or backyard? Why?
Heights make me really dizzy, no matter how safe they are.
4. Do you read food labels? Place importance on them? Make an effort to find out/care about where your food comes from?
I read some food labels, and depending what I'm looking to avoid I place quite a bit of importance on them.
5. A song you'll have on repeat this summer?
I don't know. Usually I wake up with a song playing in my mind. It lasts all day, no matter what else I listen to. I will catch myself humming, whistling, and singing it throughout the entire day. Thankfully each day has its own song.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Since I mentioned our recent visit to Coopers Rock I thought I'd share a picture even though it doesn't begin to do it justice.
