School is out! The boys are officially on break and I am excited for the relaxed schedule….for now. Lol. Usually, by the end of summer the boys are restless and ornery (and so am I)!:) I am excited for the great things we have planned though, I am praying for a healthy and happy summer. Now that the break is here, that also marks the start of our summer reading adventure. For the past 2/3 years I have just had to focus on Gabriel’s list. This year, Gabe and Grant are both participating in several reading programs and that means two poster boards with stickers and pictures.:) This year I took a picture of the boys climbing a ladder, and the theme is “Summer Reading 2010: Climbing the Ladder of Success!”
So far, I have themes for the month of June and part of July. Hopefully the reading and road trips (at the end of each week) will keep all of us busy and productive!
If you want to spice up the summer and do something little to keep the kids entertained, check out one dad’s amazing breakfast creations at JimsPancakes.com. Good ideas! Knowing my awful art skills, many of these I could never pull off, but some actually look pretty easy …and totally tasty!:)
Finally, happy anniversary to my best friend and amazing husband Jim. We celebrated our 10 year anniversary last week. I’m grateful for every day and pray for 6 more decades (at least)!:) Happy anniversary Jamie.
