Our first week of summer was great! We stuck to our schedule and it turned out just about perfect. It was just the right amount of doing and just being..if that makes any sense at all. :) Here's a peek at our week!
Make Something Monday:
On Monday we water colored. Since it was the first week I didn't have any set craft/food mapped out. Really the kids obviously didnt know any better and had fun!
Be Thoughtful Tuesday
For be thoughtful Tuesday we used our craft from the day before. I took an old can (greenbeans), took the paper off and covered it with Misters painting. Then I added a little bit of twine. Mister picked some flowers from our garden and then we took them the next day to our favorite nursery lady at church Miss Donna.Mister really liked the idea of doing this for her and was very concerned about how she was going to get the flowers if she wasnt at our house..cute kid.
What's Cooking Wednesday
Nothing too special here. Mister helped me make chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast. Yum.
Somewhere Fun Thursday
On Thursday we went two fun places. At church the night before I had seen all these great pieces of scrap wood in the trash pile that I could make some great signs out of. So in the morning I loaded up the kids in daddy's old truck and we headed over there and loaded it all up. Mister thinks it is the biggest deal in the world when we take Daddy's truck anywhere, especially when mommy drives it. (And then mommy wasn't paying attention at the gas station and accidentally put way to money in gas in that old thing so we drove it around the rest of the week...lucky ducks! )
Thursday night we took a bike ride and looked for blackberries then came home and ate ice cream.
Clean Up Friday
Friday we deep cleaned the house and got it all set up for the weekend. Mister really loved his chores this week! The first day I introduced what he needed to do and with alot of guidance he got the hang of it and now every morning jumps on the opportunity to do his share. At first I thought it would actually be way more work for me to have him help, but really in the end its about the same, if not a little less. If he wasnt busy "helping" me he would be making a mess in the living room or his room, but instead he is occupied. So while I may have to sweep right next to him I don't have to pick up a million toys. And he loved to tell his dad how he helped when he comes home from work.
All in all this first week of summer was a blast!! Happy Tuesday!
