What shall I do to celebrate #36?
For several years, I have tried to set up adventures to celebrate each passing year. Whether it has been rock climbing.... hiking to a waterfall... going swimming with turtles...or exploring the world's largest open air shopping mall... I have tried to live intentionally with friends!
This year I have to work on my birthday and the weekend that follows so an idea hit me that sounded like fun...
Starting June 1st (that is today) until the end of July (the 24th is the actual big day! ) the goal is to have at least 36 amazingly awesome adventures! Now honestly I have been to some incredible places as of late but the goal is to be intentional... use my time wisely... have some fun... try something new... and spend some time with the people in my life.
Here is the birthday bucket list... may slightly change!
1. Polar ocean world
2. Spend time outside the classroom with some of my learners and their families
