At the end of second grade, my grand-daughter made a list of skills she planned to master over the summer.
Here’s her list:
1. Crack gum
2, Snap fingers
4. Shuffle cards
5. Tie shoes
By mid-August, she had proudly checked off every item.
In June of 2011 I made a list of things I wanted to do over the summer.
Here’s my list:
- Learn how to apply eye makeup
- Go to new wing of Boston Museum of Fine Arts
- Visit Boston Islands
- Go to Carson Beach
By the end of August, I could not check off even one item, nor did I fare any better this summer.
Maybe next year?
