While Randy was gone to pick them up, I decorated (for his birthday, which is today!) and for the school party at the same time: Balloons, a small cake, certificates, and little presents. They weren't even suspecting my change in school plans, so a big yellow poster board with the words, "School's Out!" made them whoop and holler!
They were not at all disappointed that I would require reading every day, but the daily math lesson was slightly less than exciting.
I also posted a list of "Things to do when you're bored" that I had made up about a year ago.
- Do a puzzle
- Ride your bike
- practice drawing with Usborne drawing books
- work on crochet or knitting
- catch up on your sewing project
- call a friend on the phone
- write a letter to a friend or relative
- play with Nathan
- update your cookbook (I'll show these in another post)
- look at Family Fun Boredom Busters book
- read a book you haven’t read before
- play a game with Nicholas
- get out one of your craft projects
- paint your nails
- try a new hairstyle (try it out on your American Girl first!)
- pick out clothes for church this Sunday
- play in the backyard
- play a computer game
- make a card
- organize your dresser drawers
We're off to a great summer! Nicholas (3) just took a new bottle of bubbles outside to blow them and promptly poured it all out on the sidewalk. Good times!
