As of today, we are officially one week into summer vacation, and it already feels like a whirlwind. A trip to a favorite pond, the movies, strawberry picking, various playgrounds–we have already moved a couple of cards from the “go” pocket to the “went” pocket on our summer center.
So today, a home day, with nothing on the schedule but perhaps enjoying some homemade strawberry ice cream or pineapple sorbet.
The girls may update their summer journals, which are already full of observations of nature, like my tall girl’s drawing of the “female teenagers” we saw at the park the other day. Heh.
Or they may work in their creative writing notebooks. My plan was to give them a prompt each day and have them write on that topic. But somehow, a certain little someone manages to turn every topic I give into a story involving horses. Creative indeed.
I have a feeling it’ll be the end of August all too soon. In the mean time, we’ll fill our days with inspiration, adventure and, if nothing else, ice cream.
