July post


I can't believe July is almost over and and summer is in full swing. Yay!!! We have even kinda found our rhythm; Taking things easy, soaking up the sun and enjoying the beautiful weather all around. The first few days after school closed, I  was on panic mode when I realized I had no summer day camp to fall back on and that I had to plan all our activities myself. Summer camp was so good and that was what we were used to. Bus picks them up in the morning and they are gone for most of the day and I get to do my own stuff. They get their crafts, drama, shows, swimming, archery, soccer groove on over there, come back home to crash, only to do it all over again the next day... and on it goes. That was good for me.

So, I put  my mommy pants on and searched online. I got so many suggestions but I picked this one because it  looked like something we could manage; not too overwhelming



super summer schedule - this is good in theory.  in reality, i can see a lot of eye rolls this summer!source



We have been using these books to keep our brains still working.

We signed up for the summer reading program at our local library and I have stepped up my reading game. While the kids are doing their 20 minutes of reading, I also try to get some chapters in.

Journaling is back too... for everyone. Though they still complain but we try to do it even if it is a sentence with a picture, Just do it. * Someone has been drawing Optimus prime and bumble bee almost everyday*

We are saying  bye bye to Velcro snaps and learning how to tie shoe laces.

We are working on reviewing  our chores list.

So far summer has been good. I am thankful and grateful to God for all we have experienced so far.
I can't believe July is almost over *I had plans to blog more, oh well*

How is summer going at your end?

  2. You are such a Mommy! We are summer camping this year, after two years straight of "home summers". They preferred the "home" camp, I think I prefer the "summer camp" camp. We still have time to do stuff when we get home and I am so refreshed for the first time in years

    1. I prefer the summer camp too but it seems like my children like the home camp better. I can recall what that refreshment feels like and I miss it. I might need a vacation after summer.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Nice one sistah! Trying my best to keep them busy, with work books, scrabble, monopoly, watching movies together, and letting them play with their gadgets, cleaning and packing for our moving! The last activity always comes with lots of complain, ahahha. Continue enjoying your holiday.

  4. Well done Nitty. I personally hate to move and all the times we had to move God knows it was't easy. I bet if I was one of your kids I will complain too. I can complain in my own house when we moved because I am the adult. Hope you are enjoying your summer sha
