Friends~I have been wondering why in the world I don't feel like I am on summer break yet? I think I have figured it out! Check out all that The Schroeder Family has been up to since school let out!
Ian was a ring bearer in our very good friend's wedding just after school was out. Lily read a beautiful poem too!
We enjoyed 5 days at the beach with our family!
Practiced baiting and taking fish off the hook. Lily is actually the only one in the family that can do these tasks. Thank goodness she is teaching Ian so I NEVER have to learn. Thanks Uncle Tony!
Took a class called Mega Bites (Shark Teeth) and Listened to the Snake Man talk at Ocean Isle.
Got my sweet neice's ears pierced! Look real close and you can see them on those tiny ears!
What we have up and coming-Lily is playing in the Softball World Series for her league this weekend and Ian is hoping that I give the OK to Yoga Day camp.
Ian's T Ball will be up and running soon!
No wonder I am always running!
The summer is a perfect time to be your child's teacher and expose them to as much new learning as possible. There are so many free and inexpensive learning opportunities out there. Several of the camps above were FREE or cost very little. Be sure to check your local library and churches for learning camps for your kiddos.
Head out to the park and explore! Here are some ideas that I have up my sleeve for the rest of the summer:
Animal Tracking at the park
Learning to Draw on the Computer (Thanks Chantel and Kris)
Tie Dye T Shirts
Canning Tomatoes with Grandma
Working with a Local Animal Shelter
Cleaning out the house and making a BIG donation!
Making a trip back to OHIO to see family and friends
I am happy to report that after all of our travels things are slowing down and we are looking forward to the lazy life of summer!
Leave a comment and let me know what you are up to this summer!
