We just wrapped up our 2nd week of summer break. The first week was not your normal beginning of summer vacation--my parents were visiting from out of state and were in my house before my last official duty (chaperoning a formal), and then there was a deluge of cousins and a bday party for DS.
The second week we have been running running running!!! I can't believe it but I think I am more tired than when I am teaching fulltime and being a mommy and my house is dirtier, by far! We are doing a.m. swim lessons, mommy workouts at the gym many days (DS goes to gym daycare with his best friend), two afternoons a week there are art classes, and one night a week there is t-ball. DS has seldom been bored, but I don't think I could keep up this pace all summer. July will be a doing-stuff-around-the house kind of month, along with a week's vacation.
DS is starting a new preschool fulltime in the beginning of Aug. I guess it would be nice to keep him home until mid-Aug in some ways, but it will give him a head start on getting used to a new place, give him the opportunity to swim daily, and I will have time to work in my room at school, which I cannot do until then because of work going on in the building.
I was worried about transitioning, but I like to be busy just like DS, so we will all but wear out our welcome at the library, the pool, the zoo, the park, etc!!!
Having fun here!
