Summer Fun List

Hi there!  Wow, aren’t you glad that we are already on the downhill side of this short work week?!?!  I know that Tuesday {and sort of today} was a hard one for me!  I was already at school at about 6:55 today.  Good.  Grief.

I was so, so, so tired on Tuesday that I even attempted to lay on the sofa with Holden after school.  We read about 5 books, looked at letters, and just generally whined about Mommy’s tiredness.  🙂

Wowie, I’m glad to be not quite as tired tonight!  I confess I was really feeling super tired again today.  I had an early meeting followed by more testing and end-of-the-year paperwork.  I forced myself to put on some tennis shoes and sunscreen and walk with H and Roscoe to the park.  It is very warm and humid this week in Virginia Beach, but I’m so glad we went!  It is about a mile to the park.  Holden rode in the stroller today but played when we got there.  We also saw lots of geese today at the pond there plus one turtle.  On the way back, H decided to run after we saw a couple jogging around the neighborhood.  I may be biased, but I think he has great running form!  😉

In other breaking news, I’d like to share my completed May goals!

Did a lot!  I finished my book and am now working on American Wife.  We picked loads of strawberries and have enjoyed our jelly already!  Holden has some cute sandals for summer as well as two pairs of water shoes.  One pair is for daycare water play, and the other is for home.  We didn’t get to the Memorial Day craft, but we did join in with the Memorial Day remembrance action at church.

Do you think that will keep us busy!?!?!

I know we may not get to all these things or perhaps even half of them.  I just love planning and thinking about all the potential we have for lots of summer fun.  Last summer, we worked an awful lot.  I’m looking forward to more relaxing and more FUN!

My personal goals for June are…

I so want to keep up with some new friends that we have met through preschool and through my work this year.  I hope to set up some fun times for the moms and kids to hang out.  I’m about half through American Wife.  I’m having a hard time identifying with the main character, but I’m still intrigued by the book.  I hope to finish it in the next week or so.  Yoga, yoga.  Fell off the wagon with you again!  Back to it starting Friday morning.  I love the Good Morning Girls online Bible study program and am so excited there will be a Proverbs study starting up on June 15.  Check it out here.  I love Proverbs!

I’m thrilled to be getting ready for a little respite from the demands of the working world and be a full-time mommy even if it’s only mid-June to late August.  I LOVE being home with Holden!  I hope to work out some sort of loose schedule for our days.  I find things just go better for both of us if we have a plan AND if we cease the day first thing in the morning.  Afternoons are for relaxing/napping.

What are you up to this summer?

Are you a planner or fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-er?
