I have been slightly fearful of this day, to be quite honest. The idea of trying to manage two very energized little boys all day every day for the next 3 months with a new baby in tow, and a husband who works from home (insert: must attempt to keep the house at a somewhat decent decibel level) seems very daunting… to say the least. So, I decided a few weeks ago that our summer would be intentional and purposeful, and not stressful.
My first step was to create a daily schedule filled with fun, learning and rest time. We all do much better with a bit of structure and with the expectations laid out for us.
I spent some time researching and found lots of fun inspiration for summer fun activities, learning ideas, craft projects, recipes, etc. And now, armed with a plan, I am genuinely excited to face the summer with my two sweet and crazy boys!
Today was our first go at it and while not perfect I am sure it was more productive than if I had plopped the boys down in front of the tv all day. 🙂
Stay tuned for details on our summer schedule as well as fun activity and learning ideas! I can’t wait to share them with you… as long as baby Adelee prolongs her arrival just a bit more!
