Schools Out! Are you Ready?

June 1, 2010 by  

No alarm clocks in the morning

Is that how it is in your house?  Stay up real late (kids included) and then everyone sleeps in?  Do you have to work and kids go to the sitter?  Or do you stay home?  What new schedules do you have?

Messier House

In many cases the kids are home during the day now. Which usually equates to a messier house. People in it more. Beach towels being pulled out for the pool. Summer toys scattered in the yard. How do you handle it?

Schedule

Do you have a summer schedule? Do the kids have to do any reading or math in your home to keep up?  What do they do?

Chores

Are your kids good at helping in the house?  Do you make them? Do you have a chore board or give them things to do?  Do they get an allowance?

These are all things that I am wondering about this morning.  Today is the first day that the kids do not have school.  We will have to work out a new schedule for all of us.

My oldest son is a life guard at our local pool and will be working a lot.  My oldest step son is going to be starting a job at the karate studio in town and taking classes towards his 3rd degree black belt.

This week we are going to discuss these things. I’d love to know your plan.  I’ll let you know some of my suggestions. Fair?

    I’ve been planning for weeks. Each day had a different set of activities, and time tables. I have it all on a master calendar so I know who is doing what when and so I don’t forget anything.

    Monday is kid bowling at our local bowling alley ~ the 2 oldest (6&4) are on a summer team. Tuesday is free movie day at the movie theatre (check your local theatre for times and locations). Wednesday is library day (mandatory school reading)…..and so on and so on.

    We have 2 big trips planned each month (June, July and August) ~ Zoo, Sesame Place, Shore, etc.

    With 4 kids 6 and under you MUST be prepared for everyone to be home and get organized b/4 summer hits ~ I can’t imagine going into a summer any other way.
