Off To A Great Start

June is almost halfway over. I am afraid if I blink, summer will be gone and it will be time for 1st grade. We have been keeping busy while still experiencing the long, slow, relaxing days of summer.

Each morning, we begin the day with a little bit of brain work, calendar time, poem/rhyme memorization, and reading. Fun In First's blog shared a cute summer activity calendar with daily skills review for each weekday until school starts back up in August. Boogs likes to work on it. There have been mornings when I have walked into his room and he has already begun that day's work.

Boogs is an early riser. He usually wakes up between 5:45 a.m. and 6:15 a.m. So, sometimes we take advantage of our early mornings to go on sunrise walks.

Boogs is really enjoying swim team practices and meets.

We have been working on a few science experiments - growing crystals, rocket blast, goop, volcano.

 We have also had time to enjoy playdates with friends at area parks and pools. I think we are going to have a backyard campout soon. Boogs has been sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor of his room this week. Maybe that is a really BIG hint for me that Boogs is ready to go camping.
