Bring it on, Summer

Summer is gonna be busy.  I can already tell.

We were up late last night, and Abigail (aka the family alarm clock) actually slept in- until 6:15! What a treat! :) We got up, and came down to find some first-day-of-summer presents- new beach towels and goggles, and a new cute play tent!  And a bit of candy, of course!

 They spent a while exploring the tent and all the stuff, then we ate breakfast and got going on our new routine.  They got dressed and cleaned up while I worked on dishes and laundry.  They each picked an extra job, and actually did it without complaint.  We learned a little Spanish, and did a page in our handwriting books, then Abigail turned in a TV ticket, and set up the portable movie player inside the tent, where they all camped out to eat snack and watch a movie.
 All of this happened before 9:30 am.  At 9:30, we loaded in the car for swimming lessons, then back home for lunch (in the tent) and some relaxing time (in the tent). 
 This afternoon we will do some reading and math, and then we are headed back to the pool (just can't get enough).  Work hard, play hard!
I'm gonna be worn out by next week.

wow. I'm impressed. My summer plans consist of one rule: I am not making lunch three separate times. You miss lunchtime, you miss lunch.
