Vincent's school year ends next week. You know what that means, don't you?
We need to find stuff to do.
I'm sure with the new house life will be kind of upside down for a while so that will make things interesting but once we're settled in, the kid's gonna need some activities. This is his first post-school summer, so he's been used to a set schedule and regular interaction with teachers and friends. All of a sudden - poof.
It's also Rose's first summer with two mobile children. Last summer, Peter slept 20 hours a day, so things were simpler the days she stayed home.
We've got certain things covered - trips to the park, a zoo membership, a weekly playdate with some school buddies, short vacations in Vermont and the Jersey shore. But that doesn't cover the dog days. The days with no naps and the two of them fighting over the Willie Wonka hat. They're too young to really make their own fun and too old to just follow Mommy around all day. The woman is pretty great at thinking on her feet but she's gonna need some ideas.
We are now officially open to suggestions.
