Summer 2011

Since Christopher has summer vacation, I've been trying to have some kind of activity going on every day. It may be the library, Swim Club, Chuckie Cheese's, something so get us out of the house and occupied for a few hours. So far I've been somewhat successful. I think maybe two days out of the summer we have done absolutely nothing and that was because it was either SO hot or Chris was fighting a stuffy nose. Christopher has a DS now and I believe that if allowed he would only want to stay home and play it. He does stop on his own and draw pictures or watch a TV show and I have to blame my own laziness for not focusing on his summer reading. I just bought a nice new basket to put his summer reading books in for easy access and we still have not picked up a book. Which reminds me that he has a free ticket to Great Adventure for his school reading program and we'll have to go there in the next two weeks. There...another thing to do.

So far this summer we have:

Gone to the park
Mommom and Poppop's
Yankee game
Swim Club
Aunt Kim's house
Aunt Michele's house
Camping in PA
Vacation Bible School
Ocean Grove
Birthday Party
Chuckie Cheese's
Family Time Live...then night swimming (FUN!)

We still have to go to:

Runaway Rapids
Allaire Park
Point Pleasant
Gread Adventure

And I'm sure some other things I can't think of at the moment.

Sarah was in the Color Guard last year but has decided not to join this year. At first I was a bit skeptical about her decision but she says that she much prefers to be involved with plays. She going to be in the "Showcase" this fall and Color Guard would make her schedule insane. She is 17 this August and I feel that she has the right to make her own decisions about her activities. It was so cold going to watch her at the football games last year that, as much as I didn't mind going and watching her, I won't miss freezing waiting for half time.

The librarian in me is shouting, "NOOOOO!!! Read more!" The cousin/niece in me is saying, "Wish I was there to do these things with you!"
