Our summer has been wonderful, but I can't believe it is a third of the way over already! Both kids are finally at an age where I can take them anywhere and do most anything. We have made frequent trips to the library, movies, and pool in between entertaining our many guests! We are guest free this month and I want to be sure to sprinkle in a few new activities.
I came across a simple, but cute idea on a blog that I read. She sat down with her kids and they came up with a list of all the things they wanted to do this summer. I decided to do the same thing with my kids and our goals are proudly displayed on the fridge. Now, they can track our "fun progress"!
Thanks to www.thelarsonlingo.blogspot.com for your inspiration! You can guess who chose "play street hockey", right??
Along with these fun family goals, I also challenged Drew to two personal goals.
1. Be able to write your full name by your 4th birthday (end of August).
2. Swim underwater by the end of the summer.
Here is where he has gotten in one month's time. Can you see the makings of "Drew"?? It gets more and more legible every day!
He has also blown me away with going underwater. He is comfortable in the water and will swim for days with his float on and go down the waterslide, etc, but he was nervous to submerge is head underwater. This week, he decided to start swimming in the toddler pool and retrieving dive sticks! Hopefully by the end of the summer, he will move to the big pool and jump off the side. Exposure and practice is the name of the game!
Hope you are all getting to be as carefree as we are this summer!
