But I'm revisiting my goals and thought I'd share some revisions with you all here.
(What I'm about to do is probably not allowed in the world of goal-making & -accomplishing...)
Even though I haven't accomplished many of my summer goals, we have accomplished many other things here in the Locke household, so I thought I'd use some of those things to count as some of my summer goals completed.
Here we go:
- Make ice cream (sans ice cream maker): I TOTALLY TRIED TO DO THIS (with this idea) but my food processor/blender decided to break on the day we were going to make banana ice cream. Going to get a new food processor and try again later this month.
- Learn how to pick a delicious watermelon: Lo and behold... my mom taught me how! Knock knock...
- Host Sunday Suppers: Hmmm... so I was going to make this a formal thing (like plan menus and such) but to make things easier, let's say that I've done/been doing this because on the Sundays we've been in town, we have had suppers here with our friends. :)
- Make my own cleaning products: DONE!
- Plant herbs: Nope. Instead, we sent Jonas to preschool for the first time! (Yes, totally unrelated.) See pictures below.
- Mail 3 surprise packages in the mail: I've actually done this for two friends. I'm really horrible at documenting things.
- No jeans for a week: ummmmm.... later? I've been waiting for nicer weather.
- Potty train Jonas: DONE!
- Sew a dress and wear it outside: well... I definitely thought about doing this. I think that we'll use this activity to substitute (even though it's technically not sewing). I actually wore my bracelet a lot, until it fell off. :(
- Learn how to grill stuff: I'm going to replace this one with learn to make lots of pies. Cause I already did that.
And now I bring you, Jonas goes to school...
(We walked because it's literally around the corner from our house.)
(What's in his backpack? A change of clothes and snacks that he wouldn't need because they feed him at the school. Can I just tell you that I'm actually really SAD that I don't get to pack him a lunch for school?!?!?! I love packing lunches.)
(Sorry about the blurriness. We get in, he takes off his jacket, backpack and shoes, and is gone like the wind. Each day when I've gone to pick him up, his teachers always say "he's so independent! he had so much fun!" Yay Jonas!)
