I had been sick the entire last week, and I didn't see an end in sight. This is why I made other plans, in case I was still sick this week too...and needed to stick around the house. Luckily I got over my illness, but I still liked what I had in mind.
I have a long list of half finished projects, and a long list of things that have been nagging me to finally start.
When these bigger projects were finished, I had a lot of little fun projects around the house to do. I had bought some blank story books a few months ago, and we decorated those/finished the one I started for a gift. I bought a Banzai Wigglin' Water Sprinkler for the kids, and they spent a couple of hours playing with it. Best $10 I have spent recently. We also hit up the new splash pad close to our house, and a picnic dinner one night.
Before Summer started I stocked up on random $1 toys, and the kids have gotten the bug house/net out to catch some gross things in our back yard. We also found some invisible ink pens I had been hiding for a rainy day, and made lots of love notes to each other.
We still have a lot planned for the rest of the week. It will include a lot of Grandma time, walks/riding our bikes, a couple of science projects and art projects, and a big water fight.
June ended up getting filled up with dentist appointments, doctor appointments, and Savannah is still going to girl scout camp too. It has been a lot to work around, but I am hopeful July should have a lot more field trips.
