I made a decision at the start of this summer that I am feeling darn proud of right about now.
I scheduled the crap out of us in June.
I scheduled us to be fairly busy in July.
I left the first two weeks of August TOTALLY EMPTY so we could recover and rest before school starts on the 14th.
It is working out great.
Kiddo did three different camps this summer, UU Chalice Camp, River Camp, and Zoo Camp. We hosted a mini family reunion (5 adults and 1 baby). We hosted another mini reunion (2 adults, 2 kids) There were also swim lessons, trips to the library, going to the Jungle Play place, going to the park, regular playdates, and an early summer slumber party.
And now we get to just lounge around for two weeks watching movies in our PJs and organizing the house for the start of school.
Kiddo has also read over 200 books this summer and done seven workbooks. So… yeah… we have earned ourselves some mindless movie watching!
Well done us!
