Most of our kiddos are on a modified-year-round school calendar. It’s really nice.. basically, it means that Summer is a little shorter, but Fall & Spring breaks are longer. I love it because it’s so stinking hot here that Summer is long enough even at six weeks. And, it gives us time to travel if we would like during the breaks. This year, however, we will be home for the break. D is still in class most of the time, he does have a couple days off, and B is working a lot, as am I. So, we will try to sneak in fun. Yesterday fun = an afternoon movie & using our Pogo Passes for free Glow Golf. Today, we are heading back to the movies.
I feel bad because my kiddos are stuck helping me when they are home. But, I sort of don’t… Caring for others is so good for them! They get to have a little one who thinks they are the coolest kid ever. And they get to learn a little patience… putting shoes on a three year old is harder than they think! And, probably my favorite thing, it forces them to unplug and play! V & B love making forts & the littles love playing in forts. They create games and scenarios that the littles don’t even start to understand, but everyone is having fun and laughing.
It’s raining a ton here. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t cause any serious flooding. The park by our house is already about halfway full.
