Three things I want my kids to...

Jordan is sponsoring another Group Writing Project. These are a lot of fun! It's interesting seeing what a different take everyone has. This time we have to fill in the blank, Three things I want my kids to...

Three things I want my kids to experience before they move out of the house:

1. Cape Cod- I have such wonderful memories of spending summer in Cape Cod. Every single year we'd drive from NY to Cape Cod. My parents and brothers and aunt and uncle and cousins. We'd rent a big house right on the beach. We'd go swimming and biking and boating. Those are some of my favorite memories. I'd like my kids to experience that at least one time before they leave my nest.

2. NY- The place I grew up. Unfortunately I haven't been back in years. It takes a lot of money to fly six people across the country. While a lot of my family has relocated, we still have some relatives back in NY. And I'd like my kids to see the school I went to and the park that I played at.

3. Canada- I remember going to Canada all the time when we lived in NY. It was an adventure. Sometimes Niagara Falls, sometimes Toronto. I first saw Phantom of the Opera in Toronto, what an experience. I'd love for my children to see what Canada is like. To them it's just another place very far away. We now live on the other border.

Maybe one summer we'll head off for two to three weeks and catch them all. That would be a blast! We all love to travel. It's so much fun to see new places. And I'd love to see my kids in a new place that is "old" to me.

Interesting take on the project. Most others (including me) have written about what we want our kids to learn or be.
Great job!

This is a really fun choice! These are placed I'd like to see someday, too. (Well, I have been to Canada, and that was an awesome time.)

Thanks for participating!

Where in NY did you live?

And those are great choices for the project. I'll have to check it out if I get time today.

What a great list! It would be wonderful to share these pieces of your childhood with your own children.
