Every year as a summer “tradition” of sorts, the kids and I make a summer bucket list. This started back in 2011 when the Boy was 3. This hasn’t only been limited to a summer bucket list, we also created a Road Trip Bucket List for our road trip a couple of years ago. I wanted to have things to keep them occupied, because what are you supposed to do for 11 weeks of no school with a 7 & 3 year old? Well, I created a bucket list. It was a list of fun, small or big things to do and we worked our way through the list over summer break.

The downside to the Happy Planner Mini was there wasn’t a designated place that I could use to write my meal plan. I was using a ruler and pen and just marking off 1.5in boxes off, which was great in theory, but not very pretty.
