Summer Break!!!

Here’s a tip–don’t forget a word. If your premature baby spends a month in the hospital, don’t start school within a week of coming home for no reason even though it’s too early and you’re not prepared and you have a pump or baby on your boob every ninety minutes. Tell your husband or a trusted friend to slap your hormones silly and remind you you’ll be temporarily out of your mind until the sleep deprivation is over.

When you don’t listen to them through your hormone-infested-sleep-deprived ears, know that you’ll get to be on summer break in the middle of May the following year! The ends justify the means, right?!

Last year, I started to list our summer weekly agendas. Somehow, babies have a way of messing with all our plans, don’t they? (Speaking of that baby, Ariana just saw him and called him Joey–cause Josiah isn’t good enough I guess…) I’ll make another attempt at it this year, but there are no promises when kids are involved.

Here’s our daily schedule. I left off specific times for the sake of all you stalkers out there–this is simply an order of events:

Breakfast, Bible, Chores, Play Outside
Fun Activity
Lunch, Phonics for Pre-K
Rest, Big Kids Read, Practice Piano, and Do Flashcards
Free Play
Habit Training
Family Time
Bed

Here’s a general outline of the fun activities I have planned:

Monday–Park
Tuesday–Home Camp (theme based craft, book, music, movie, food, etc.)
Wednesday–Outing
Thursday–Water Play, Art Lesson and Science Experiment
Friday–Free Day

This week, we plan to visit Christian Park and the Indianapolis Firefighter Museum. Summer!!!
