Summer is on its last leg. At least as far as children are concerned.
My daughter has very few days left before school starts back up. She has orientation next Wednesday, and then school starts next Thursday. My baby is starting kindergarten. That in and of itself is crazy to me. It doesn't seem like it's been that long ago that she was born and just learning about everything. And now it's off to kindergarten...yup Mom is done thinking about that part.
And so my goal right now is to make a last blast of summer. The weather is perfect. I don't have to worry about it getting too hot. I don't deal well with heat.
We are talking about going to the zoo on Saturday. We also wanted to camp but with only one weekend left, well some of the fun things of summer are going to carry over into school time.
I would like to make smore's with Alexis sometime as well. I'm not comfortable with the grill myself however I'm thinking it will be a fun thing to do Sunday afternoon.
I want to make a trip to the park, and I would like to go to one that isn't at the school. LOL All summer we have gone to the playground at the school because that is the one that she has wanted to go to. However she will be playing at the playground at the school everyday starting in a week. And so I would like to take her somewhere else.
The other thing I want to do before school starts is sort her clothes. That is a crazy task to under take. But she has some things that I want her to only wear for play, and some things I would like her to only wear to school. I also want to set up our 'school days' routine. This may be a little more complicated because I don't know yet what she will have to work on. But I will make it work.
There isn't a lot going on in my life that doesn't revolve around that. Tell me, what do you do right before school starts in an attempt to make the transition easier?
