Summer is here! We’re already starting to get calls on the morning show about the end of school and summertime! We are so excited that you get to have the summer off! When I was a kid I remember sleeping in as long as I possibly could, eating cereal for breakfast, lunch and snack…and snack…and snack (as often as I could). I also remember being really bored at times, and telling my mom how bored I was. “Mom, I’m bored!” In fact, we got a call this morning from a boy who is already bored since he’s out of school.

So, we’ve got a plan for you guys!

A summer bucket list – because you know what? It’s always good to have a plan.

Our summer bucket list has so many different things you can put on your bucket list! Things like flying a kite, squirt gun fights, or how about water balloon fights?

The thing is that we don’t want you to just print it off. Instead, go get some poster board and colored markers and make your own bucket list.

Draw some boxes for checkmarks and put the things on the list that you want to do this summer. Post it where you can see it and check them off your list as you do them. Have fun with your family, enjoy sleeping in, and enjoy that cereal!
