I’m an extreme planner, so I’ve been trying to focus in on figuring out our summer plans to make sure that we can do everything that we want to do. With J being five, things are starting to get interesting! He’s been dreaming of being on the swim team since last summer, so we’re going to to be embarking on that journey this year. With that, though, comes challenges and obstacles in planning the remainder of activities/camps that we can do. J really wants to do Art camp again this year and has expressed interested in Zoofari, as well. Luckily, G is not quite old enough for any of this stuff yet, although he will be doing swim lessons! There’s also Vacation Bible School, if we can work it in. Then, there’s the potential family vacation at the end of May. I’m beginning to truly understand how it’s harder to have school aged children than just toddlers, at least in terms of logistics!
It wouldn’t be too difficult to fit it all in, except that we’ve eliminated the entire month of July as possibilities for activities due to the impending arrival of #3. With precipitous labors, I fear travelling too far from my house. The zoo, in particular, is not happening since I’ve had way too many dreams of giving birth there (although, admittedly, it’s not the worst place it could happen if it has to be away from home!).
I feel like I may have a handle on what we’re going to do, but it looks like it’s going to be an intense June. I’m fairly certain our summers will forever be crazier than the “school year.” Any one else getting ready for the summer months while it’s still winter?
