My main goal this summer, beyond no school and some relaxation, was to keep my 5 year old from getting bored. I am an on the go type of person, I like to stay busy and make sure my kids have lots of fun. In anticipation for summer, I signed up my oldest for swimming lessons, karate camp, and 2 separate vacation bible schools. It is only July and I am starting to get a little burnt out. This week is a VBS week and swim lesson week. My boy is having a great time at VBS which is fabulous but I have, this week especially, been doing a lot of running around. Not to mention we had a very stressful moment with our van and some flat tires. Swim lessons have been rained out 2 times as well so I am driving to the lesson and turning around and driving back. Gotta love the Florida storms. I need a break!!!
Wouldn't it be great if there was a camp for mommies? I know there are boot camps and such...but I am thinking a fun and relaxing camp-where you could take your kids there and they are having fun and taken care of and you get your "camp" time? I am thinking a spa, some girl time, and maybe some fun activities for the more adventurous. A girl can dream can't I?!!!!
I am going to have a low activity week next week to recover. How do you keep your kids busy at home without too much tv or electronics? Suggestions appreciated!!!
