My last post was about some of our plans for the summer, but there’s more to it. The plans that were published in the paper were ambitious enough, but I have even more in mind, so much that I’m a little afraid to tell anyone outside the family about them, in case I just can’t make it happen. I hope to be blogging more about it through the summer. I recently sent my family a 1,000+ word email detailing the plans and expectations and hopes I have for this to be a “happy summer we can all be proud of,” to which my oldest daughter replied “Great Scott, you’ve written a novel!”
My six year old son needs a lot of structure in his day, structure I am not accustomed to providing with two quiet, studious, artsy type daughters who did not need to be told not to run through the house yelling – at least not very often. I foresee a challenge in establishing some kind of daily/weekly routine that supports our sanity, but isn’t too rigid. Wish me luck, and watch this space!
