We finished up our school year last week with shouts of joy! I was just getting over a nasty sinus infection, so I was just as glad as the kids to be done with the normal routines and tasks. Here's a glimpse at what we're planning to spend our summer days doing:
~Splashing at our neighborhood pool, both for fun and swim lessons for all three boys
~Going on a Faith Expedition with our church's Vacation Bible School
~Enjoying thrills and fun at Kings Island
~Participating in our local library's summer reading program
~Cheering on our favorite swimmer and his team, the Windwood Warriors
~Church Camp will be a first for our oldest, and his dad is going along to be a counselor
~Learning about US History with Veritas Press' self-paced online class (this wasn't my initial plan, but the kids love it and wanted to get started. Now they are eager to do each days lesson right after breakfast. Who am I to argue?)
~Watching Pete's cousin and his beautiful fiance get hitched in Indiana (Sam will be the ring bearer)
~Switching rooms around. Jon switched with Will. The school room is moving from the basement to the formal living room.
~Cheering on two baseball players on a Y league team for June and July
Somewhere in there, we'll be doing read alouds, playing board games, having water balloon fights, some math workbooks, and finish building a tree house, etc. We're going to enjoy all of those things listed above and soak up some less structured time together.
