What's on Your Summer Bucket List?

One would think that teachers would have plenty of time to do all those wonderful things we've been compiling on our bucket lists. And some teachers may. But most of us have second jobs when we aren't teaching (we aren't paid for our vacation time), or are taking classes to maintain our certificates, and have families with busy schedules like everyone else. 

This summer I'll be going to my son's baseball games (which I do love) and taking a class (which I don't). So I won't be doing a whole lot of crossing off my bucket list, except for this, perhaps:

My Summer Bucket List: 1. Ice, 2. Beer

Pin It
:D

Last year, however, we were able to take an amazing road trip west. We saw so many things I had never seen before, like...

The Badlands, South Dakota

I guess it's OK I'm not doing much traveling this summer since we packed so much in last year, but I'd love to hear about your adventures. Feel free to comment and post a link. And have a wonderful summer!
