Summer Kickoff

So, I know I said I was on the path to doing better.  Remember some paths start out slow ;-).  This is our first week of no school at the Johannes house.  It is also the week before we head to the outer banks for our family beach vacation.  We are very excited to say the least!!  When I say family trip, I mean family trip also......we have my Mom and Dad, Susan, Chad, Holly, Dylan, Mo, Me, Chip, Kylie, Kiersten, Daisy and Mommom!  We are racing around this week doing laundry and doing our "to pack" lists. 

This is the last summer that Kiersten will be a "pre" schooler.  She starts kindergarten in August, I can't believe it!!  I know it is cliche, but I really want to know where the time has gone.  Kylie will be in the 4th grade, I feel so old.  We won't talk about my birthday coming up and how old I will be.  The girls love each other one minute and hate each other the next, which makes for some stressful moments in the house.  To help control this, I have discovered timers work great for splitting up computer time and other things both girls want to do.  I also had them make 3 lists....one for things they want to learn over the summer, one for things they want to make and one for things they want to do.  I will take the lists when we get back from the beach and create a schedule/calendar.  I think this will work great with our personality types and keep our summer fresh and exciting!  I will keep you all updated on the actual success of this as we go into the summer. 

So to kick off the summer, stay cool, wear sunscreen and enjoy the times!!
