The following is a guest post from our newest regular contributor, Kristin at The O.C.D Life. Welcome Kristin!
It seems like at the end of every summer, I question whether my kids actually got to have some fun over their break. I know my kiddos are still young, but you are never too young to have a little fun. I guess you could say, our summer activities have never been very organized. I am a to-do list type of person. If I have a list written down, I know what needs to be done. Plus, I enjoy marking things off these lists. I get internal joy out of using that No. 2 pencil to draw a nice and thick line through an accomplished goal.
So, this year, I decided to create one of these lists to keep my family fun organized for summer. I sat down with my daughter and we created a list of 30 things that she would like to do this summer. Some of them do not even require leaving the house and a few can be accomplished at the same time. And, I learned a lot sitting down with my daughter to create this list. Kids do not require a lot of money spent on them to have a good time. One of the top things she wanted to do was have a pillow fight in the living room. I was completely shocked, but pretty excited to jot it down on the list.
I have included our summer bucket list and a printable that will help you and your family create one as well.

To help me stay focused on my summer family activity goals, I placed this little document on the refrigerator. Our refrigerator is the most viewed spot in the house, so I will get to view it several times a day.
Have fun creating a summer bucket list of your own!
My name is Kristin and I am a high school career education teacher by day and a mommy/wife/blogger by night. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two loving children. We live in the bootheel of Missouri in a home that is always under construction. I get excitement out of finding new creative, functional, and cute ways to organize things! I also enjoy writing and documenting life as it happens. So, I put these three loves together and created The O.C.D. Life. With the help of my husband, I am attempting to turn our house into a home. So, check out this special place of mine and take this journey with us! Learn more about me here and the meaning behind my blog’s name here.
