Summer Has Begun
-not pack any school lunches
-not lay out clothes the night before
-not have to leave my house like clockwork 2x a day
Now I have a new problem: two boys who will need some entertaining. Sure, they play a lot by themselves. But if I go into summer without a plan, big problems are going to happen; problems like bickering and fighting and throwing toys and crying.
Today I came across this great article on Make and Takes called "Summer Camp for Kids", where they will give us some great ideas for summer fun. They also have a great blog post called "Summer Tub O' Fun" that I plan on doing this week.
Here are a few things we plan on doing so far:
-Play dates. At least once a week.
-Summer school. I signed the boys up for summer school 2x a week for one month. It is not really "school", but more of a structured playtime at Jaden's preschool. At least I have 8 mornings taken care of (out of 84 - yikes).
- VBS. Don't you love churches that have VBS?! I do! I do!
- One trip to the visit my parents, one trip to Morro Bay, and one possible (short) camping trip. I can't wait!
But...for the days in between, that is where I need some creativity. I will be working on that in the next few days, and will for sure visit Home Stories A to Z for some inspiration on this topic! :) What are your daily plans for the summer?
