Is It Summer Yet??

School is on it's last week for the kids. Their excitement is cracking me up. I remember counting down the days as a kid for school to be out. 20 more days left! 8 more days left! 3 MORE DAYS LEFT! I must have driven my mom crazy.

Last summer the kids had a great community pool within walking distance, the summer before we had our own above ground pool, this summer... nothing. What will my water babies do?! I'm such a spoiled brat when it comes to water. I have always had a pool, or lived close to the beach, or had a best friend with a pool :) Not sure how we'll survive. Yes, I am aware I'm whining, sorry.

So what am I going to do to keep us all entertained when the sun is hot and boredom has kicked in?

We have a few trips planned, the biggest being to Disneyworld, and a couple little trips to visit my parents. Other then that we'll be at home. My goal is to not let the kids get sucked into the "boob tube." I really don't want their brains to turn to mush from staring at the screen for 15 hours a day. Oh, trust me, there will be days when i'll say "just go watch the TV for goodness sake!" But what will I do during the idol times? Hum... I think this will have to be my most creative summer yet. I'll let you know what we do to keep busy, once I figure it out that is.

Have a super fabulous summer everyone!

au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...

Water Gun Fights 2pm daily!!! just after the highest UV index has past.

I'm hoping to get each of mine in 1 week long day camp per child. It depends on what's available.

I'd love to put 1 in a week long camp too but we'll see,
Summer rocks! we will also head to the beach. I just have to find the sunscreen :)
A deck of cards is always a good thing.

You know, we were laughing last night because our 7 and 9 year old were playing in the 1 foot deep, 5 foot in circumfrence baby pool we still have. They had a ball. I'd look for some type of a backyard pool--for a hundred dollars or less you could get something that I bet they'll have a ball with.

I'm sure you'll all rise to the occasion. I think I'd give up my membership to our pool if we were going to Disney. lol.

Good luck.

Oh no not the summer boredums. I need some help with that too. Hard to keep them happy and busy all day.
Disney sounds so great. We want to go too. Maybe next year for us.

Have a beautiful Memorial Day!
