Friday was (finally) the girls last day of school! After a busy weekend of dance rehearsal and recital, we hopped in the car *early* this morning to head to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons for a week. Once we get home, Jane Anne will head straight to summer camp (nothing like starting summer off with a bang!), but once she’s home, we’ll try to settle into our summer rhythm.
The woke up to a last-day-of-school basket with some fun treats, a tradition we started last year
Last summer, I instituted a summer schedule, and it worked really well for us, so I’m trying it again this summer. Here’s the plan:
Masterpiece Monday — we’ll have an art lesson about a famous artist, using this book, and then attempt to create a masterpiece of our own.
Tackle-a-task Tuesday — this day was one of the girls’ favorites last year. We’re planning on assembling a dog house, making a compost bin, making a set of yard dice, etc.
What’s for dinner Wednesday — cook a new recipe together
Thinking Cap Thursday — some kind of brain challenge: lego challenges, science projects
Fun Day Friday — who knows what fun we’ll have!!
Each day they’ll also be chores and some reading/journaling time, as well as lots of free time to play.
Do you have a summer rhythm?
