Today was the last full day of school. Tomorrow is a half day. Then summer vacation starts.
I haven't planned a darn thing, except joined the community center pool and signed two of them up for Vacation Bible School.
Not planning anything was partly my way of rebelling against those people who look you square in the eye and ask, "What do you have planned for your kids all summer?" and lord help you if you don't have weekly camps on the agenda.
I usually scramble with my answer to try to make us sound busier than we will be. But in actuality, they're going to play. And read. And do chores. And watch TV. And chill. And relax. And learn some new tasks around the house. And eat me out of house and home, I imagine.
Is that good?
I do think a schedule is in order for the sole purpose of keeping the peace. I'm sure I'll fill out my trusty Chore Board. I also plan to have them continue their meal planning and cooking each week like last summer. That was fun.
But, did you know we are "The ONLY family in the entire state of Pennsylvania who hasn't been to Dorney Park"?
And because of that statement, I have tasked each of them to make a list of 10 things they'd like to do this summer.
Those lists alone will make a good blog post and I'll be sure to share it.
Wish us luck.
