My daughter leaned over my shoulder yesterday while I was changing her baby sister’s diaper and said, “Wouldn’t it be funny if she just peed in your face?!” I can’t wait for her to go back to school, but oh, wait–we’re homeschooling this year!
Every summer vacation there comes a point when I just really want summer to be over and school to start up so that I can have peace and quiet again. This year will mark the first summer vacation where my sanity will not be saved by my kids returning to the public school system, instead I will have to figure out ways to endure the painful comments about pee and poop and not burn out on my children’s company before our homeschool year even begins.
I’m all ears…
Actually, a magical thing happened this afternoon…I decided to limit T.V. (actually Amazon Prime) time to zip, zilch, nada during the week and only allow my kids to watch shows on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays…
Initially, this idea was met with an exhaustive amount of, “I’m boooooorrrr-eddddd!” but then my children eventually found something to do:
they found a lady bug and observed it for a while–that was cool
then they decided to dig a big hole in the middle of the back yard–not as cool, but better than T.V.
I feel confident with a little patience we will all make it through ’till the end of summer. I have lots of books to read, a few that I’ve finished and plan on sharing with you all, and my final curriculum haul is coming in the mail in the next week or so.
Definitely plenty to keep me busy, but what about them?!!!
How about you all? Your kids driving you crazy? What do you do to make the most of the last month of summer vacation?
