Summer Time Fun






Welcome back 

Now that school is out, what are we going to do? That’s every parent's question. You’re in luck. Today I will let you in on what I’m doing with my little ones this summer. 

    
       My son is 5 and my daughter is 2. It’s important to me that I keep up with their education so they don't get summer slump. If you are at home with your children over the summer, I suggest you do the same as well. It’s really important to keep their little minds stimulated. Especially since Malachi is going to kindergarten and his school is expecting so much of him already. I don’t want him to be behind on the curriculum. So his teacher was nice enough to put together everything he needed to work on for the summer. I also went out and got work books for him as well. 

   McKinzie on the other hand, we go over how to spell her name, body parts, colors, ABC's and 123's. I want her to be ready also. 

  Other activities you can do with your children, take them to different parks, not the one that you usually go to. Nature walks are the best, it give your kids the opportunity to see different flowers, rocks, and just play around outside. This summer I will be taking my kids to the aquatic center.Also check out my youtube chnnel. I will be posting Vlog and more.  

    Financially it’s not realistic to go on a vacation every 3 weeks; however, try to plan some type of getaway with your family. We have the opportunity to go to Florida this summer. I’m excited to go. I don’t think my kids know how much fun we are going to have. Low key thinking about surprising them with the trip. 

   Make goals for your children, it don’t have to be anything big. One of Malachi’s goals is to be more age appropriate. You may be thinking like “give him a break he’s only 5” however I just have to remind him some times, he’s not a baby he’s a big boy and he don’t always have to have to do what McKinzie has or do what McKinzie does. I’m also teaching him to clean his room and keep it nice. 
        

     One of McKinzie goals is to relax, I’m trying to get McKinzie to stay clam. She’s anxious about the small things, like her pillow being half way off her bed. I just don’t want her to grow up always worried about things, so I’m teaching her young. If you see something in your children that may potentially be a problem later on in life, you have to stop it right away. 

So lets recap 

  1. Read and go over curriculum from school
  2. Do a lot of summer activities 
  3. Try to take a vacation 
  4. Set goals

  I hope you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed taking all the pictures and writing it out. I hope some of the ideas that I have provided helps you and your family out.

Until next time. 
Toni.

  4. You have lovely children. I think you're absolutely right that children need to be stimulated during the holidays. It's such a long time to do nothing much at all. I think you've put together a fabulous program of activities. I hope you all enjoy the summer.

  8. How awesome that you've made plans for your little ones - and the whole family. You will be amazed by how much that positively affects your children when they're older. My Mom & Dad used to do the same thing with us. I'm so grateful for their sacrifices.

  15. Your little McKinzie and Malachi are very cute! This is a great plan for a productive and fun summer. That's what I call good parenting.

  16. I just can't believe summer is here already. The kids are adorable. It truly is hard when kids get anxious. I usually get down to my sons eye level and tough his face. Talk to him gently. It actually calms him down.

  17. I hope you get the chance to go on that trip to Florida. It sounds like you have a good set up for helping you get though the break while still keeping up with what they learned all year long. Good job.

  18. Sounds like your kids will have a great summer! My kids will be helping in the garden at my parents and if they are lucky maybe do some camping out. Otherwise it is just fun playing in the pool and doing a little recap for my oldest for school and finishing to prepare my youngest for Kindergarten! <3

  31. Oh I agree to that.. They have to learn some things about discipline while young. It's hard to teach them that when they grew up with it already.
