So tomorrow is the first day of summer vacation...actually Friday was, but I let the kids have a free day. Tomorrow starts summer under my rules. Friday alone, showed me a glimpse of what it was going to be like all summer if I didn't put my foot down!
Hence, the summer schedule...with time for reading, for playing, for their electronics, but also for some learning. I'm trying to make it easy, letting them choose subjects they like. I have tons of workbooks, coloring books and educational books....so I made up little kits for each week. They can do them all, or just 1..no pressure. I just want to break up the day so we don't have fighting everyday.
My brother is coming into town tomorrow and we are leaving for vacation this weekend so I know that the schedule needs to be fluid and flexible. Hopefully, things will learn a little more smoother than it did Friday!
What are your plans for the summer? Do you plan things for your kids or just fly by the seat of your pants?
