Toddler Tuesday: Summertime

Kids are chomping at the bit and parents are holding their breath all because school is almost out!  This time of year always reminds me of that Alice Cooper song, "School's Out for Summer"...can't you just hear the lyrics?  As a student, I was always counting down the days until summer.  While I am still counting down the days with Brother Goose, I'm not so sure I'm as excited as I was as a student.  Brother Goose is still a new to the idea and hasn't really figured out what summer break is all about...and besides preschool is so much fun anyway why would he want to take a three month break!

However, I am thinking, what are we going to do with three months of no school or BSF?  I'm sure there will be plenty of days of doing nothing, but with a 4 year old, days of doing nothing are not always the best for behavior.  So, I'm beginning to plan out things for us to do.  Here's what I've got so far:

  • Camping
  • Train trip
  • Boating
  • Water park
  • Swim lessons
  • Movie Day
  • Sleepover with grandparents
  • Picnics in the park
  • Karate lessons (possibly)
  • Vacation Bible School
  • Crafts
  • Play dates with friends
  • Cooking and baking

Doesn't all that sound fun? Actually, I'm getting more and more excited about summer break just writing this post.

I trying not to jam too much in, 'cause part of what summer is about is resting and relaxing and plus who knows how much of that list we'll actually get to.  

Getting to spend the extra quality time with my goslings doing these activities will be the best part of summertime.  Don't you agree?  What are you planning to do with your little ones this summer?  I'd love to hear about your plans, too!
