Summer Vacation!

It’s finally summer! I used to plan summer vacation for myself, but now I’ve got a companion! I’m so excited to have all summer to do nothing but play with Joshua! Well, I guess I’ll probably have to pull my weight with dishes, laundry, cooking and cleaning.  But the majority of my days will be spent playing!

Each week, I hope to find time for each of the following:

  • swim in the pool (this may end up being more than once a week!)
  • go to the beach (may substitute the pool…)
  • go on an adventure – aquarium, zoo, movie, children’s museum
  • do something crafty at home – paint with pudding, build a cardboard play house…

I also want to transform the room above our garage into a playroom.  Toys are now crammed into our living room and not organized at all, and we have this big empty space.  Some ideas-

  • Find kid-sized table and chairs. I have a little rocking chair, maybe paint it…
  • Add a nice rug
  • Make  a felt board
  • Set up a cozy reading area and move Joshua’s book case into the playroom from his bedroom

Of course I want to do some things for myself, too. I’m hoping to keep up with Weight Watchers for the summer and I also have a few books I’m reading.  I’m hoping to get some canning done and keep up with the garden, too.

What are your plans for the summer?

  1. Sounds like you’ve got your days already planned with lots of activities and adventures…what a little sweetheart you have there! Nothing planned for this year. We usually go to British Columbia but we’ll go next year. We’ll probably keep plugging away here on the farm cleaning up what years of other’s neglect left behind but we enjoy seeing the changes. We’ll be jumping in the pool though! Have a great day.

  2. Sounds like you have a FUN summer ahead. And It’s great that you are making it a priority to PLAY!
    yay for summer:)

  3. Can I join in on the fun?

    I’m planning on some quality “Joshua time,” too!

    Love,
    Mom/Grandmom
