Summer Vacation!

It’s finally summer! I used to plan summer vacation for myself, but now I’ve got a companion! I’m so excited to have all summer to do nothing but play with Joshua! Well, I guess I’ll probably have to pull my weight with dishes, laundry, cooking and cleaning.  But the majority of my days will be spent playing!

Each week, I hope to find time for each of the following:

  • swim in the pool (this may end up being more than once a week!)
  • go to the beach (may substitute the pool…)
  • go on an adventure – aquarium, zoo, movie, children’s museum
  • do something crafty at home – paint with pudding, build a cardboard play house…

I also want to transform the room above our garage into a playroom.  Toys are now crammed into our living room and not organized at all, and we have this big empty space.  Some ideas-

  • Find kid-sized table and chairs. I have a little rocking chair, maybe paint it…
  • Add a nice rug
  • Make  a felt board
  • Set up a cozy reading area and move Joshua’s book case into the playroom from his bedroom

Of course I want to do some things for myself, too. I’m hoping to keep up with Weight Watchers for the summer and I also have a few books I’m reading.  I’m hoping to get some canning done and keep up with the garden, too.

What are your plans for the summer?
