Back in the spring, I tried to plan our summer knowing it would be very different this year since I can't travel, be on my feet for long periods of time, and the babies could likely arrive early. So, our summer routine is camps in the morning, lunch, pool, quiet reading time for the summer reading program at the library (rest time for me!), and late afternoon playtime outside. This week was our first week implementing the routine and it works pretty well. The kids attended tennis camp and had a great time. Yes, Anna Cate played in her cast, much to her orthopedists dismay, and then in the brace she has to wear for 3 weeks.
Todd was out of town today for a golf tournament, so we had friends come in town yesterday to spend the day at the pool with us.....we got to the pool at 10am and didn't leave until 5 pm. Kathleen and I got a chance to catch up and the kids had a great time. When we finally did leave the pool, we ran to a local restaurant that is super kid-friendly and grabbed dinner. At one point, all of the kids were up dancing! Needless to say, they were asleep before their heads hit the pillows.
