I have been thinking about this for days. And my heart want to make this a summer of purpose. I want to have an idea of what I want to conquer over the next three months. I don't want the months to just drift by and then all of a sudden it is time for school again. That is very easy to do. And I will be one very unhappy mama...most likely because my kids will probably fight and argue all summer long. So, I am making a loose schedule out for the kids and I. I don't want to be crazy about the schedule...especially since I am quite the stickler for the schedule during the school year. Just enough written down so I know what I want to do and complete. I have some good ideas in my head. Here is what I was thinking so far:
-A bible study of the book of Acts for me and the teenager.
-One afternoon a week work on science experiments with William (the others can enjoy too, but science is William's thing).
-Go through several chapter books with me reading to the kids.
-Read every day with William.
-Go to the local museum at least twice.
-Go to the free movie every week (as long as the movie is appropriate).
-Hit the beach a minimum of once a week.
-Organize one area of my house once a week (had to put that in).
-Swim team of course.
-Water aerobics a few times a week to add to my workout schedule.
-Work on the kids work from their children's church class.
-Go to the library every week.
How does this sound? Yes, I may not get it all done and I would love to add some things. What are you up to? Any ideas? I really would love to hear your input here!!!
