We did some sale shopping at the outlets, visited the playground, and had a family fudgsicle walk. Sunday, my dad came to visit and the girls were so excited. They loved playing with their Bopo and Ashlynn was excited to pick out a scooter and get burgers and, more importantly, ice cream.
Monday we spent the morning playing outside and headed to a family picnic after naps.
Ashlynn's school has a summer camp program and I was originally planning on keeping her on schedule, still attending her two part time days a week, but after learning the cost was changing and knowing we were already going to take August off due to vacation, we just decided to to give her a real summer break. So this is her last week of school, which is a little sad because she's made some giant leaps with opening up, being social and playing with friends, actively participating in class from the shy mommy clinger she once was. So with that said, I still want to keep her active and engaged for the summer. If not for her own social, physical, and learning development, then for the fact the days we don' have activities planned are usually our worst. We are in a fun phase of the power struggle, where she just ignores my requests with a nonchalant "I don't want to".
So more gymnastics, swimming, tennis, and hopefully we get into soccer too, we've been waitlisted. Give us all the activities, keep our days busy! And of course when all else fails, just add water!
