First and last day
(Next year I vow to do a better comparison picture so I can see how much she has changed and grown in the last year.)
Anyway --- Grace's first year of preschool was a success. She is going to a private preschool that comes highly recommended here in town. We had her in the twice a week program from 9 to 11:30. Just enough time to get some energy out and provide me a chance to run errands with one less kid to load and unload. A welcome break, if you will. Grace's teachers were absolute saints... and took great care of my girl. We will miss them next year, especially since one of them is on to the retired life of a grandma!
This summer I hope to keep the kids active by getting out of the house at least once a day. That way we feel productive - but not overwhelmed. To help I came up with a summer bucket list again this year that we can hopefully accomplish easy peasy with one big activity a week.
Our 2018 summer bucket list...
-Go strawberry picking
-Go to Deanna Rose Farmstead
-Complete the summer reading program through the library
-See a movie at Memorial Stadium
-Picnic at the lake
-Go to the fair
-Go to the zoo
-Spend an afternoon at Wonderscope
-Run through the sprinkler
-Build a fort and watch a movie in it
-Take sister pictures of my girls
-Have lunch with Grandma
-Learn the alphabet
-Teach Grace to write her own name
-Practice Grace's speech diligently
-Learn the difference between left and right
-Potty train Brooklyn
-Attend Vacation Bible School
-Go to the farmers' market
I hope to have this list wrapped up by the last day of August. So let's goooooo.
How are you keeping your kids occupied this summer?!
