This is going to be our first in-between-school-years summer. Kindergarten is winding down (not even going to think on that specifically or I’ll turn into an emotional mess) and summer will be here in no time at all.
We are planning a Disney vacation at the beginning of the break, but that still leaves a lot of weeks – many, many days!!
One summer goal is for Banan to read about a book a day. I’ve been buying extra books from his Scholastic monthly flyers (but the library is an option too, plus makes a great outing – just not sure I’d want to go every day, lol). He;s already reading well above level, so I want to continue that and perhaps even increase the level a little bit.
I want to plan ahead and have activities, crafts, and outings planned (but not so much a rigid schedule – it is summer afterall). Having ideas, supplies, printouts, etc ready will free up time for fun instead of planning for fun.
Calen will be 18 months old on the first, so I also want to do crafts and activities that he can be involved in.
I have been checking out car organizing ideas – I’d like to have an organizer on the back of both seats and have snacks, small toys, DVDs, and other needed items loaded up to make our Summer outings go more smoothly.
What are your Summer plans?
