    Give a little time before a new year to think through what MAJOR GOALS are on the list that "must do" for the next months/years for you and your family.

    We made a list of major trips/events we wanted to do as a family before our kids left home for college. Didn't quite do all, but sure would have done less without goals and planning. These included

    East coast historic trip
    West coast scenic nature trip
    Disney world/Florida/South tour
    Holy Land with teens
    Hunting/fishing/backpacking in the mountain West
    Special Conferences/conventions
    Ministry trips to mission work, church planting, foreign nations
    Puberty trips (to talk about birds/bees et al)
    Sporting/shopping trips

    Found that if we didn't husband the time/planning (like saying when the youngest was 5 we’d go back to Disneyland where we’d been earlier with our boys) and save $$ (like trip to Rome/Egypt/Israel we did TWICE with our kids), we’d be too busy and too broke to do it . . and they’d be off to college to play football.

    So . . what's on your travel bucket list for the next couple years?

    ...are you willing to adopt ... dad?

    My kids benefited from my own bucket list.

    Niagra Falls
    Camping
    See a rocket take off (cancelled the lift off but we hit Disney)
    Ride an elephant
    Fly fishing

    A trip to Israel may have to wait for its renovation.
