The summer is officially here, I guess, now that Memorial Day has passed. Having all 3 kids at the house all summer long is going to be an adjustment! I printed out the months ahead and started writing activities down! And I think we’ll survive the summer 🙂
Library: The kids signed up for the summer reading program. We will also be going to story time each week, checking out books and tacking advantage of the special summer events they offer.
Movies: Now typically I couldn’t pay for 4 of us to go to a movie each week – but our local theatre has a summer program! They have 2 movies each week (all fun kids movies) and everyone under 10 years old is free. Over 10 is only $1! For a buck- I can totally take the kids to a movie 🙂
Playdates: At least once each week, I have time carved out to play with other kids! And that means I get some time to chat with other moms – very nice!
Swimming: In addition to swimming lessons, we will take advantage of the YMCA swimming pool often. Cool off and play in the water – I’d say that is the epitome of summer – wouldn’t you agree?
Vacation Bible School: Who could forget this summer staple? The kids learn about God’s love – and I get 2.5 hours to myself! Perfect.
Throw in a couple little trips near Tucson, a trip to Wyoming, a trip to Iowa and I’d say we’re set for the summer. (School starts August 6th…so I really only have 2 months to fill!)
The blog has been quiet, I know. Honestly the last few weeks have been rather introspective for me. Sometimes I feel like sharing my thought process, but this time I am just working through most things in my mind before blabbing to the world. 🙂 And also there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes with my business that I will share when the time is right. I know that a couple new fabric lines will be arriving this week – so I’ll be sure to stop back in and show you those!
