Summer holiday Love it or loath it

I took the boys to school this morning, which calls for a celebration in itself.  But I was shocked to hear the amount of parents bemoaning the holidays and saying “roll on September”, even more so as there children could hear them say this.  I appreciate not everyone enjoys the holiday time as much as I do, but really why would you be so misaerable to spend time with your children.  I just don’t understand why people would have children if they didn’t like spending time with them.

Anyway on to the holiday planning.   I actually started this blog with a very similar post all those years ago and back then I was a control freak and an obsessive, who was still under the impression that I could plan our lives to the ninth degree.  We had spreadsheets and charts and laminated activity stickers (oh Yes I was that anal), do go and have a look, we have come a long way baby.

Yesterday after dinner, we sat at the table and brainstormed our summer activities and made a chart (which I pinched the idea from Cathy at Nurturestore).

So today is the last day of the school term for both my boys and I am so excited to be spending the next six weeks in their company.  I know that there will be up and downs and many days when I want to lock either them or me in a room, but I am determined to make the most of it.  What about you?
