So today is Zoe’s last day of school. I’ve been so busy with schoolwork that I really didn’t see this coming, and I’m feeling a bit under-prepared. I try to have at least a vague game plan for what we’re going to do for the next 2 1/2 months…and that hasn’t happened yet. This is especially important for Zoe: she’s so used to having a schedule that going through summer without at least a few things planned out is a recipe for disaster! Although I must say that I got a few things taken care of: I foraged through the kid’s rooms (more specifically their closets) and I found a veritable treasure trove of crafting kits and art supplies that we’re going to make use of this summer. Most of these items were either gifts from family and friends over Christmas or stuff I picked up from craft stores while rummaging through the sale bins. Either way, I’ve got the antidote for boredom this sumer!
Yesterday I looked into a kids’ yoga class for Zoe and Ayden. Turns out there is a yoga studio directly in front of the studio where I take flamenco lessons. How convenient, right? Zoe is really into yoga these days, so I thought that might be something fun for the kids to do every so often. Ayden will be in preschool for part of the summer, so he’ll be pretty busy for about 6 weeks during vacation this year.
Aside from that I will certainly have to make time for cooking with the kids. Zoe is particularly interested in learning to cook, so this might be a good time to get her started with a few simple things. She’s already a pro at salad, and she’s itching to try to make other things.
The kids are hoping to spend some time at the beach. Flamenco Dad teaches on Fridays at a school near the gulf, so that might work out. What about you, internets? Any plans this summer?
