This last week of summer vacation had me scrambling to cross off all the things on my summer to-do list for the kids.
I spent every day letting a different kid invite a play date over.
Then we would plan something fun to do when they got here.
Like the Altitude Trampoline Park on a rainy Monday. Or finding sea glass and playing at the beach on a beautiful Tuesday. Wednesday we managed to stay away from electronics for a few hours with soccer at the park and a few rounds of hide and seek chase.Thursday we put our new biking skills to work by biking to Navy Pier with another friend. We were planning on Navy Pier activities, but there were too many Pokemon to catch.We still managed some treats, though. I’m really looking forward to getting back to ‘me time’ (AKA going to the store alone, jogging without paying a sitter, and not hearing my name called every 3 seconds) while the kids are in school next week, but I’ll miss my role as social director as well.
And I’ll miss my father! Without him here tending to the other kids, none of this would have been possible.Pin It
