The List

As the new year dawns, the Robinson family has set out to find more adventure in 2016. So we decided to make a list. A list of all the things we want to challenge ourselves to do this year. Some are silly, some are simple, some will be very hard to achieve. But all of them should be fun. We’re calling it The List and you’re welcome to follow along as we try to check each item off. The List is a living list, so we’ll be adding more things as we think of them and crossing things off as we do them. Oh, and blogging about the particularly great adventures we have because of The List. So, get ready. We’re making 2016 a fun year.
