Our Summer of Fun

End of Summer Thoughts:

I thought this was a really fun summer and even though there were surprises and my summer schedule didn't work out exactly according to plan, I was glad I attempted it.  I think it will make future summers easier and I will have a better idea of what works and what doesn't.  (Tip 1: Don't move if you want a smooth summer!)

All in all, this will definitely be a summer to remember and I'm glad I took this summer to spend extra time with my babies.  There is definitely nostalgia as we are about to send our oldest off to Kindergarten!


I decided since this will be my last summer with all my kids home before real school starts that I wouldn't put any of the kids in summer school.  This way I could also put both boys in swim lessons every day for 6 weeks to help them become better in the water.  I have also seen ideas to create a theme for each day to help schedule activities a little better and use less TV and iPads, etc.  I knew that this schedule would work best for all our personanalities, but of course there is flexoibility and relaxing to help make it a little less strict.

Here are some quick links of what we do each week and the pictures and explainations that go along with it.  I will be adding to these throughout the summer so you can check back to see what we are up to!
