Miss C.'s Kindergarten class has been counting the days left until the most important day of all: the last day of school. Each day, she eagerly reports on how many days are left: "Mommy, there are only 19 days left of school. Soon there will only be three... then two... then one!"
She's not the only one around here who can't wait for summer vacation to start. This mama is eagerly anticipating having her girl home for three whole months. I miss having her around all day long, and often wish we had more time together. By the time she's finished with school and homework, it's time for dinner... then bath, stories and bed. There simply isn't much time for fun during the week.
Last Saturday morning, Miss C. and I laid around in her bed and daydreamed about what we are going to do together this summer. We didn't want to forget anything, so we made a list. I loved listening to her ideas and watching her write everything down.
Would you like to know what she has planned?
Miss C.'s Summer List:
- Make popsicles
- Go to the library
- Play dates
- Bounce place (this in one of those indoor play places that are perfect for hot summer afternoons)
- Play in the sprinklers
- Go to the park
- Play games
- Sew a pillowcase (our first sewing project together!)
- Art projects
- Make cookies
- Learn to roller skate
- Blow bubbles
- Make cinnamon toast
- Read chapter books
This is going to be a wonderful summer. I think what I like most about her list is that it's filled with simple things. We're not going to over-schedule ourselves or rush around "doing things". We're just going to have fun.
Have you started dreaming up summertime plans too? I'd love to hear them!
