Must haves for summer survival...
1. a schedule of worksheets for them to do to keep their minds sharp.
2. a football to toss outside
3. freeze pops...
4. a library card
5. Headphones (for yourself, trust me)
On the home front, there are 10 more weeks of the summer. My “galaxy” as I like to call them (since we are the “guardians of” lol)… will be doing various summer camps—hey, with 5 of them in the house at the lowest $150 a week… it’s kind of expensive around here. I've got a schedule set for them, worksheets printed out so their brains won't turn to mush. I have my writing schedule to coordinate quiet time. And there there will be camps here and there. All I can think about are the adventures and stories they’ll come home with. As a writer, my mind begins to wander and wonder who will be first to have a summer love.
Ahh Elizabeth Wakefield fell in love with "an older man"... lol
You’d think with as creative as I can be with pen and paper... I’m not all that creative when it comes to finding things for my “galaxy” to do. The closet thing I’m going to have them do is a backyard slip ‘n slide.
Have I ever shared with y'all my summer book... the book that takes place over the summer? Give it a try.. It answers the question of... "what do retired beauty queens do after they hang up the crown"...
So not only is it now summer.... there are officially 29 more weeks Christmas. Right about now, Macy Cuomo’s calendar is booked up for holiday decorating. What is that? Imagine hiring someone to climb up on your roof for those competitive festive lights. Check out, The Magic of Mistletoe
Also... please check out this week's spotlight on Kimani Authors... maybe you'll find a new favorite to put on your summer reading schedule.
Hope to see y'all there!
