i may or may not have gotten a teeny tiny bit emotional as i watched big yellow school buses pulling out of the school parking lot with teachers lining the sidewalk, waving to the departing students- providing a most memorable bon voyage.
i also may or may not have gotten a teeny tiny bit emotional as oldest daughter was awarded the honors of academic excellence and student of the month.
even, i may have experienced a bit of emotion at middle daughter's kindergarten performance earlier in the week.
these are my kids. they make me proud. they make me smile. and some days, they make me tired. and now, i have them for a whole summer- all to myself. until school starts again on july 28th. (i may be a teeny tiny bit emotional on that day as well)
so, when you have your kids all to yourself, all summer long, what do you do? i'm not talking about whether or not you go crazy, more along the lines of activities and bonding moments. what fun trips do you plan? what crafts? what excursions? what rewards? what do you expect of your bambinos during summer break?
i think we will implement the 3 otter pop plan again this summer. it was a smashing success last year. also, i think we will play. hard.
so, share with me your best bits. i need to know what you do- so i can do the same. and maybe other moms might want some ideas as well.
