Another Fun Saturday


When life hands you a hockey split-
of practice at 9:00 am and another at 5pm...
What do we do??
Waste down time at the beach!
Since practice is over an hour away- it's been a good excuse to visit beaches we don't normally visit.

Very fun.
I am starting to think about this summer -
we have lots of fun planned with family/company.
I am now thinking of how I can sneak- summer learning into the mix too.

Last year- we ( my neighbors & friends) organized some workshops that the kids could sign up for. It was really cool- as families organized classes that interested them. Some of the classes were:
The re-enactment of The Battle of Gettysburg: water fight
a watercolor class, an acting/play, a goal setting class, and tennis lessons.
This summer- I've been talking to parents and thinking about a townhouse newspaper project. I think it would be cool for the kids to be "reporters" ... They can interview new families moving in, have a sports section highlighting the latest kickball game, have a "Help Wanted" column where people can put odd jobs they are willing to pay for, a cartoon, cross word puzzle, polls, ..
community events- keeping track of concerts and such at the University- most importantly: when is the POOL open and game room.
Really whatever the kids are interested in. We'll see. We are tossing it around. What are you guys planning this summer?

Well, I would say that I'm jealous, but I'm not because we get to play in the concrete parking lot with the potholes! So beat that!

I was TRYING to get a group of Moms together to do a DIY summer camp... but somehow nobody was as excited as I was??? Maybe that had something to do with my starting a little late in the game (2 weeks ago rather than 2 months ago) but I'm going to blame it on their being lame instead :)

I'll try again next year - for now we're just assigning an activity to the day of the week (Tuesday Treat Day - they get to help cook a new treat for the day) and hoping for the best!

When my husand was growing up they used to do 'popcicle parks'- get a box of popcicles and head off to visit a park they didn't visit before

What am I doing this summer? Planning to visit YOU!
