School has been out for over a week now.
Typically I schedule the holidays as they begin, but this Summer we took a family trip as soon as the 6-week break began,
(But more on that in a future post.)
It’s time to schedule the rest of the holiday. We have just over 5 weeks left. Plenty of time to fit in all the things the Kids’ want to do.
We’re scheduling a little differently this Summer. The Kids’ are older and have much more of an idea of what they enjoy.
So, rather than Mom sitting down pen in hand and mapping out activities, I turned it over to them.
With a large piece of card and some pens (washable of course ;))…
Some scissors and paper…
Blu-tack (although it’s now white!?!)
There’s a plan! A schedule!
Rather a loose plan I grant you. But this year we are going with the flow a little more than usual.
I already have a general calendar. I know what days we are booked to do specific things. There are still certain commitments and appointments to keep such as swim lessons, dance classes and dentist appointments.
But where there is space to choose, the night before (once the weather has been forecast) the Kids’ can select an activity or activities for the following day or days.
It will, kind of, be weather dependant.
Although at the moment the UK is baking. Baking hot.
Which ironically was the activity selected today. Baking.
Kids eh? Full of surprises!
