Summer Plans

It's shaping up to be a busy summer. This morning, I got the kids signed up for swimming lessons starting in two weeks, and then next week they will be attending Vacation Bible School with friends (three hours off for me in the morning, woo-hoo!) There is a weekly activity with our playgroup, and library programs to attend. We can't take a big trip, but have two or three short ones planned. And we plan to do some family activities, too.

I am all about lazy days at home; I don't believe in overscheduling kids, but all of those activities only take up part of the day and not every day will take us away from home. There will be plenty of time for lazing around the house in our pajamas and rotting their brains watching a limited amount of quality children's television. My main goal is to prevent the screeching at each other that just happens to be at the precise decibel level that threatens to pierce my eardrums.

Wish me luck. I'm gonna need it.



  1. OK, you've got me! That's it! I'm signing mine up. A little for them and a little for me. Summer's just around the corner for us!

  2. Sounds good! It's the constant bickering that drives me mad, so having some activities sounds good. I'm with you on not over-scheduling though.

    Of course with us having been so sick recently, I've been completely unable to stop the rivalry, and semi-sick kids fight so much more annoyingly than well ones.

    My kids are 2 and 4. Does it get better or worse? It's worse isn't it? Oh save me.
