Every October we have so many things going on that we literally have to lay down some ground rules about accomplishing some fun stuff! We make a bucket list! This list isn’t a have to do kind of list but it’s more of an idea of what every one wants to do in this busy month. I highly recommend it, it holds me more responsible for doing more fun stuff with the kids. They definitely keep me in line and we usually accomplish more than one thing on that list. I love making lists so this is always fun for me! We have a summer bucket list, one for October and December, and also a overall (to be accomplished at any point) bucket list.
My kids always come up with some crazy stuff, so this list took some negotiating but here it is!
Our October Family Bucket List
- Visit a Pumpkin Patch
- Breakfast for dinner
