This first week of summer vacation has been nicely busy. Seems I'm not the only one, as so many of my favourite bloggers have been MIA too - getting into the swing of the first week of summer vacation (and children 24/7), winding up of the school year with so many fun activities for kids and parents at schools, or off on vacations to all corners of the world.
We've had a mixed bag of lazy mornings, swimming, zoo, judo classes, icecreams, parks and playing with friends. We also squeezed in a visit to the dentist and haircut too just to make sure we're looking good and don't have any toothy problems on our summer travels!
In between all the fun stuff, we keep a little 'school work' going so that everything they learnt in the past year isn't completely forgotten over the next 3 months vacation. My son (age 10) he has thirty minutes each day of either math[s] practice or 4 pages from the Summer bridge the gap from 4th to 5th grade workbook, plus 1 hour of reading. My Ruby (age 4) practices her letters, numbers, spelling and learning to read. So far so good - without too much face pulling or moaning that I am a mean mama!
This is what our days have looked like so far ...
