After just 7 days of Kindergarten, today was the first day of Girlie Girl’s 3 week vacation. Can you believe that? And I have to tell you, I haven’t been looking forward to having her home for 20 days straight. What in the world are we going to do?
However, I have to admit that it was pretty nice to be able to sleep in a little since no one had to go anywhere this morning. After having breakfast, we spent about an hour doing some school work from her Brighter Minds Workbook. Thank goodness she really enjoys learning. In fact, she wanted to keep going till lunch!
The afternoon was spent making macadamia nut chocolate chip cookies, complete with a lesson in counting and measuring. The cookies were eaten during our summer backyard picnic.
Then the girls and I took a walk to a nearby park and spent the afternoon on the jungle gym and slides. Girlie Girl made a few new friends while Baby Bug and I flew a kite. Thank goodness for the trade winds – it was a very hot and humid day!
Finally, it was time to leave. On the walk home, Girlie Girl said, “Mommy, this is the most fun day I ever had.”
Maybe having her home for 3 weeks won’t be so bad after all.
What’s the most fun day you’ve had with your kids recently?
