Today is our first day of our first real summer break! Preschool ended last week and this is our last week of Preschool Storytime at the Library. We get to have a two week break before Maggie's week of Summer Day Camp at Church and we're not planning a family trip until August. August.
So...what are going to do???
I would love to say sleep late, but my sweet Maggie inherited the "wake up early" gene that I had before I had children. We were up at 6:30 this morning.
We are working on a zoo trip with our best friends from Sanford and planning to have lunch with Big Daddy once in a while and meet up with a special friend that lives close by. Cousin Callie will be out of school in a few weeks, so we'll probably have play dates with her and Nana. I would like to take Maggie to a movie at some point. Big Daddy had a date with her yesterday and she saw her first movie (Shrek) in a big theater.
I feel like I would have tons of fun things planned if we were still in Sanford, but the truth is I probably wouldn't. We would go to our favorite greenhouse once a week and visit Gammy Gladys a lot, but that's about it.
Big Daddy has tossed around the idea of getting a family pet and summer would be a nice time to do this. (I guess he thinks that I need something else to take care of and clean up after!) He has never really been a big fan of pets, but Maggie & Ellie both love a nice, calm, friendly dog. Ellie lights up when she sees her "cousin" Griffin and both girls are in love with our neighbor dogs, Slater, Jack, Sky and one other one. I can't even think about an indoor pet (unless it's a hamster or a fish) because of my asthma and allergies and tendencies to try and keep the house clean. I wouldn't be against a nice, large, quiet dog that lived outside. I say "quiet" because we have been the unfortunate neighbors to a barking (all. the. time.) dog and it's not fun. Anyway, I don't see the pet-thing happening right now. Although, I'd love a nice, big dog to walk with!
So...I think we'll play outside a lot, try to go on one "field trip" each week and remain pet-free for the time being. Just making it through going to the grocery store each week with Maggie and Ellie is all the adventure I need!
