(ignore the cupola sitting on my porch... It was damaged in a hailstorm and that is where it sits until it reaches the top of my to-do list. Also no lanterns, but the electrician should be installing all light fixtures this Tuesday)
So, with today being our first day of summer, the boys and I sat down to write out some fun activities they would like to do these next couple of months.
This is the list so far....
We also discussed having a schedule this summer (I am very unstructured, so I need this as much as they do). They helped me come up with the times and activities for their days.
This is a rough draft of what the schedule will be.
We are going to try it out and make adjustments as needed.
You will notice on Instagram that I am considering homeschooling as an option, (sick boy on the porch--no furniture yet)
The boys are actually really excited to have a schedule. They immediately went to their rooms and tidied them. Then they begged me to check them and grade them on who's was the best! I was stunned to see my four year old put away all of his clean laundry (a full basket)!! It wasn't folded, but it made it to the appropriate drawers. Bonus! We celebrated with a picnic lunch at the Pond!
My heart is full. I am looking forward to many days of summer!! (check on me in August!)
I know this post has nothing to do with my house or remodel, but I just wanted to give you a little glimpse behind the scenes.
If you insist on seeing what went on with Eleven Gables, the house, today...
We have GUTTERS!! (I'll do a post soon about the tennis ball size hail that hit our home at the tail end of our kitchen remodel)
Just in time for a nice little rain!
Happy Summer, sweet followers!
