Many of you already have kids out of school for the summer. Not here, there’s two more days left. We’ve been running from here to there and everywhere.
My oldest, “A”, is finishing up her 8th grade year. We’ve had an 8th Grade Dance, Award Ceremony and tonight is the 8th Grade Recognition. Tomorrow, the last day of school, she goes on a class field trip and won’t get home until very late.
My “G”, he’s finishing up his 3rd grade year. We recently finished a school project where he did community service. He chose to help at the local Soup Kitchen with our church family. It actually came at a great time for my pre-teen, moody boy to experience helping others in need. He really enjoyed helping out and I expect that he will want to do it again. He also received an award at school, so I attended his award ceremony as well.
“E” finished up his Tiny Tots class a while ago, but the BIG – HUGE news here is that it looks like we’re finally potty trained – YAY!! Besides only a couple of accidents in the last week, he’s been dry all day. He even gets upset if I suggest that we wear pull-ups when going out. As a reward for his “almost” perfect week, I purchased him the Jake and the Neverland Pirates Appisode that he’s been bugging/begging me to put on the iPad.
So, it looks like we’re getting ready for summer? Um.. I feel a slight panic because I’m not as prepared as I would like to be. In the past years, I’ve had Summer Vacation Orientation all ready to go. It’s a plan that hopefully keeps me sane during the summer months with the kids home. I haven’t even started it yet. So, I guess I know what I’ll be doing in the next few days. This mama needs a plan!
What do you do during the end of school crazy? Or better yet, how do you do summers with the kids home? I’d love some advice. Comment below…. Please?
