Summer 2013 Plans...

So, in the midst of our elementary school making me cry every other day...darn 4th grade music receptions and their kindergarten pictures lining the hallway...and yearbooks with wishes of good luck in middle school...and Kindergarten Picnics/Graduations.  Not to mention a 2 year old and a 8 year old celebrating birthdays.  This June has been pretty emotional.

And to top it off, the Goobers have been asking what we're doing this summer.  Like I even have time to think about it :D.

So here's what we came up with.  I know we tried this last year and didn't get too far so hopefully we will this year.

Definitely hitting the Bronx Zoo.  No other zoo we have been to compares.

Possibly hitting the Museum of Natural History.

Maybe heading out to the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk and the Stepping Stones Children's Museum.

Taking part in some of the summer offerings at the library.

Participating in the summer reading program at Barnes and Noble.

I'm thinking a smaller list will let us be able to accomplish more.  Plus we plan on doing LOTS of Tot School with Chunk this summer.  We're working on him using more words and getting him to talk more.  And if he's anything like Sweet Nut and Cute Boy, we'll regret it in a few months when he's talking non stop :D  We already tried a few things, so there's some posts in the works, plus we have a whole Pinterest board of toddler ideas.

We're debating doing a summer challenge again.  I'm thinking yes, but want to talk it over with the Goobers to get their feedback on it.

All in all, while dealing with that Mom feeling of the babies are growing up, I'm excited to try some of these neat things for summer.
