Busy body

Shayla has had one week of summer break, and I've decided this summer with her home all day will kill me. She always has to be busy doing something. Too bad she's not extremely helpful or I'd send her to work with Grandpa, who is a busy body himself.

To try to ease the boredom of summer, Shayla came up with a schedule for herself. It cracks me up:

  • Games
  • Draw pictures
  • Journal
  • Make place mats
  • Jump rope
  • Journal
  • Crafts
  • Kites
  • Clean the windows
  • Go on a picnic
  • Bubbles
  • Play school
  • Play dough
  • Mosiac
  • Streamer dance
  • Make cookies
  • Friends
  •  Make a family newspaper
  • Parents day
  • Make a map
  • Make suckers
  • Play marbles
  • Sound quiz
  • Make a dance
  • Start piano
  • Pump up bike tires
  • Sleep on trampoline
  • Work on numbers
  • EZ Bake oven
  • All about Me poster
  • Typing
  • Sign language
  • Weave yarn on sticks
  • Rock painting
  • Ride bike
  • Journal
  • Chore
  • Friends
  • Scrapbooking
  • Bubbles
  • Cut pineapple
She started the calendar today. She had finished half of her list by 9:45 a.m. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh!!! We did cut a pineapple today, but I didn't really have plans to have a pineapple every weekend of the summer. :) I'm sure she'll figure out more and more to do as the summer continues, but I'm thinking first grade can't come soon enough!

Scotia always wants projects and crafts like this too. Makes me crazy. Kindergarten in 7 weeks - wohoo!

What a clever list--almost like a list of goals to accomplish--we'll be watching, Shayla. Maybe when we come down you can display all your fun projects!

That is so funny! I'd hop on that "clean the windows" train and ride it for as long as you can. Maybe you can convince her that all housework is fun. :)
