Friday Fun Day
twinkles - how people, places and things shine and share happiness
winks - little hints from life lighting the way toward one's happiest path
This summer, I have four kids full time (two mine, two in my daycare) and no minivan, because I refuse to surrender to that. I've put together a whole schedule for the summer, arranging what to do on each day, depending on who's gone for a bit it summer school, who's off for family vacations and what stuff my family has going on.
The good news is, we've got wheels. A wagon for the littles and two bikes with training wheels for the biggies. There's a strip mall of sorts just up the road. There's a google-world full of ideas. There's a great daily schedule already in place.
Every Friday is Friday Fun Day, spent outside in our baby pool with the plastic slide dumping right into it creating a mini-water slide for lots of fun. I roll out of bed, throw on a terrycloth romper, and let the kids play, play, play. Maxing and relaxing. It's like an early/extra day off.
Think about how you can create some Twinkle Time this summer. Eat popsicles. Sit in a chair in the shade. Read a good book even if you haven't read one in ages. It's the best time of year. Savor it.
See you Monday.
