The End of School Days
Dmitri's last day of Montessori school for the summer is coming up all too quickly (next week!). He loves going to school, and I love him going to school too. Even though it's only 2 mornings a week, it makes a big difference in his energy level. He enjoys his friends, and working and playing in a new environment. He loves to "go". Anytime, anywhere- and his school is a positive outlet for him. And I enjoy a half-break (although, days with Damon are less and less of a break- more like chasing after a climbing crazy wild man.)
I'm a little unsure what we are going to do without it these long, hot, summer days. I bought an extra big blow-up swimming pool today; so we will give that a try! What are your boredom-busting ideas for toddlers? (I know, I just used the "B" word. Sigh. As hard as I try to keep it out of our vocabulary, it manages to slither it's way back in, usually when Dmitri and Damon are constantly hitting/pushing/wrestling over the same toy when they have 50 million others at their grasp. Oh, first world problems).
Summer, here we come. I wish I were a little more excited...
