We are all so ready for it.
(Erin and I on the scrambler at a local carnival this past Saturday)
It doesn't mean we can't be flexible and change it up. But it will help us have a little bit of structure which we need. Especially since they do have some summer homework packets to work on as well.
So this upcoming week involves a trip to the Botanical Gardens with friends, a trip to the zoo with another group of friends, some haircuts, bicycle helmet shopping and going to the library to sign up for the summer reading program.
We are also going to have one cleaning morning a week, because I am trying to make it more of a family effort as they get older. Plus, I do not typically get a cleaning day all to myself during the summer like I do during the school year. And frankly, I am not going to be cleaning the house by myself while they watch! (lol)
I also definitely want them to have time to relax and just play whether alone, with each other or with friends. We are going to have play dates galore I am sure. And I am planning on some serious time away from screens so they can be creative.
This is a boat Evan created the other day at his grandma's house. Tape and scraps of paper and cardboard. That is all it takes! I love when he does things like this!
So that is the general plan for summer. We will see how it plays out, but I have high hopes. :)
And one more thing before I go. I have a little giveaway that will be going up on the Craft Your Nest
blog tomorrow, but I wanted to give you all a head start here. :) Our facebook page has almost 100 likes and we are looking to increase it.
This is just a sample of what is going in a priority box that I am filling with scrap supplies. 12x12 and 6x6 papers, masks, photo overlays, frames, project life cards, a few alphabets, an embellishment baggie full of flair, veneer etc...
To be entered in the giveaway, you can leave a comment here. If you are on Facebook though, we would love for you to go *Here!* and like our Fb page if you haven't already. Also, if you share this giveaway and the Craft Your Nest page on your blog or facebook page that will give you additional entries into the drawing! Just let me know in the comments if you do. So spread the love if you feel inclined. :)
Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back Thursday with a layout!
