What are we doing this Summer?
Life is short let's enjoy Ourselves.
I have friends that their children are in activities constantly. Running from here to there and back again. I choose to not be that way, I'm not saying that it's wrong. I'm just saying it's not for us. I mean who are we kidding, I don't look real cute rushing from here and there. And I can hardly get dinner on the table after educating the future leaders of tomorrow. Soccer is just gonna have to wait. But, don't judge me I'm all for sports and music, but dang.
So what's Manic Mom's family doing this Summer?
During the summer this year we have 5 camping trips planned. Two trips to San Fran, and endless trips to local parks and museums locally. We are also going to a museum in Redding and we have an Aquatic center pass. We try to go swimming at least 4-5 days a week.
Both older kids have church camp for a week each and countless library trips not to mention 2 scheduled trips to the local zoo.
I guess we do have a lot planned. I'm not totally lazy! I do plan on starting a novel with each of the kids so next year they are prepared right off the bat for a book report. We are also starting an herb garden this summer and reorganizing the garage. I plan to take advantage of all town activities and events with the church. Skylar has youth event 3 times a week at church and Mahala has them twice a week.
Other then that we play TONS of games. We are a game family. I do not allow them to watch tv all day or have video games all day. Because if I did not monitor them they would seriously be doing just that all day long. I heart my kids.
