My kids have 8 more days of school.
I am actually looking forward to it. Not getting up early to get us ready for the day. No getting them to bed at a good hour so they can be ready for school in the morning. I won't have to make sure their uniforms are cleaned and ready every evening. I won't have to go read with kids at school, I have really enjoyed it though, or drive to the school three times a day to drop off and pick up at two different times.
I am looking forward to some summer fun.
But I do know in the back in my mind that summer really just means more work for me. I know they will be fighting their first minute of summer vacation. And the "bored" word will come out the first full week with no school. I am not that naive. So I have planned things to help me with this. I am a planner!
I have each week set up for my summer school. I have supplies bought for projects and books bought or checked out to go along with the lessons. Wall maps are bought and ready to be hung. I am READY!
This last week I have been starting to think about what kind of foods I need to have at home too, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, easy stuff.
So what are you guys doing to prepare yourself for summer!? That goes for all of you with kids and those of you blessed to get rid of your school kids. :)
