The three months have begun. Triple the time, triple the fun, triple the crazy. We're not planning anything huge as Sander doesn't have a ton of vacation days yet this year, and our house in Holland seems determined not to sell which putting us in a tiny financial pickle. Nothing major, so long as we stay in the parental basement... but I don't think anyone will be surprised when I say that's not anybody's preferred course of action right now! I mean, we're totally comfortable here and we're all getting along... but a family of six needs their own space.
So, how do I plan to survive the summer? Or wait, I can phrase that more accurately. How do I plan to have my children survive the summer? I plan to not worry too much. I plan to stay on top of housework. I plan to be outside a LOT. And I plan to keep exercising because Lord knows, I am in need of those endorphins and the extra energy. Of course I also plan lots of little fun excursions and extra things to do with the kids. There's Lagoon, the Dollar Theatre's weekly kid's film (only $10 for the whole summer!), the Dinosaur Park, Treehouse Museum, the Splash Pad, Children's Museum in SLC, the Waterpark, etc etc.
