The First Day of Summer Vacation

6:15 am- My wake-up call.

"School today?", said Dylan

"No honey, no school, summer vacation."

thump, thump, thump...

Batman song playing in the background from their "movie computer".

I rollover to check email and to see the news for the day and I realize I better have a plan for the summer. The kids can't just sit in the playroom for the next two months watching batman cartoons. We need a plan, a schedule, we need to just get out of our pajamas!

I have been in denial about school ending and summer beginning. I love summer, but it just adds another layer of scheduling and work for me.

So, on today's to-do list- plan the summer! I know, I know I have been saying for months, "I want a low-key summer with less planning", but I think plan B needs to happen. Plan B schedule the summer, activities, fun escapes, and mini vacations.

Thank goodness we leave for Camp Kaleidoscope tomorrow for the next four days and get away from the movies. Movie detox that is what we need and we will get it at Camp Kaleidoscope.

I will post from Camp Kaleidoscope and tell you all about it, along with any funny stories and pictures.
