- The Fam
So did you and the kids have fun dreaming up perfectly fun summer? Well, now it’s time to get serious– just for a bit!
It’s time to set some goals for the summer. I know that this seems very adult-esk (and boring), but in order to ensure a fun yet meaningful summer you’re all going to want to have some clear goals in mind. Having some goals in mind will also help when organizing all your ideas.
Our All-Girl Club Summer Goals
We decided that we want to have a culminating project at the end of the summer. Heading out on daily expeditions is much more exciting when you have a purpose…a mission per se.
Our project ideas:
- Compiling an informational book (basically a scrapbook but organized by subject).
- Gathering a collection to show off at show-and-tell next year when school starts or to display at the public library.
Raine (6-year-old) wants to stop sucking her thumb and learn a lot about science. My goals for her include having her write daily and less T.V.
Lime (2 ½ years old) wants to be a big girl and start wearing panties this summer. She also wants to collect rocks and animals. I want to find ways to incorporate counting and letters into our adventures.
For me, I want to finish my life plan, read tons of random books, and write whenever I feel like it. I want to start projects that I always want to do, but never make time for…I want to play.
I realize that my girls won’t be little forever– I won’t be young forever, so I don’t want to take this particular summer for granted. I’ll work hard to be really present this summer; treasuring every moment I have with them.
It has always been important to me that the girls have a lot of free time to play without us hovering over them. This summer I will give them lots of opportunities to explore and be creative…to just be kids. Of course, I will also continue to nurture their love of learning during our summer of play by incorporating plans for a smattering of things they are curious about.
Woo hoo! So excited to get started…
