We’re down to the last few weeks of summer – school starts on Sept. 3 for Adam and Allie. As usual, I’m feeling that “we haven’t had all the fun I meant for us to have” crunch that I always feel as the beginning of the school year approaches.
Adam hasn’t been helping the matter any. He’s not happy about our childcare arrangement (the kids have been spending their days with family friends who have three little kids of their own) and has made it known that he’s bored. Of course, his suggested alternative is to stay home by himself – which would no doubt mean video games/TV all day. Not happening. (We do let him have a day to himself once a week, though.)
Anyway, the kids and I all have this week off. I *think* that this should help their “fun quotient” for the summer.
Friday/Saturday: Birthday party sleepover at Adam’s friend’s house
Sunday: Movie (Adam/Tim/my dad) and school clothes shopping (me/Allie/Jenny/my mom)
Monday: Water park with Adam and Allie’s best friends, and Jenny is at my folks’ house for two days.
Thursday: Trampoline play place
Friday: Another zoo
Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Weekend in my mom’s hometown for the annual “Jubilee Days” celebration
Sunday: Air Force Museum on the way home
I *think* this oughta do the trick … but who knows.
Do you get that same ”we haven’t had all the fun I meant for us to have” feeling at the end of summer?
