Enjoying Our Extra Short Summer Vacation

Hello, and happy Tuesday! I've been out of my normal posting pattern of Monday/Wednesday/Friday for a while. I'm not sure exactly when I'll be going back to it with summer vacation now in full swing. There may be some hope for my blog posting pattern to return in July when Piper attends a summer program at the school for 6 weeks!

When I heard of a summer program being offered in-person at the school this summer, I enrolled Piper immediately. It sounds like the program will offer a mix of literary instruction, math instruction, art, gym and STEM activities! It's all being taught by Piper's Kindergarten teacher and another teacher in her district.

Since we did remote learning at home for Piper during this pandemic school year, the biggest benefit of this summer program for us is that it will all be done in-person at the school. Even though the summer program will be much more fun and activity-filled than a typical school day, I figured after being schooled from home for so long, this would be the perfect on-ramp for Piper going back to in-person learning for First Grade this Fall!

With all this said, I can't believe we are already midway through June! Our summer vacation is extra short with Piper's summer program coming up in 3 weeks but, we are happy the program will only be going 4 days each week, Monday-Thursday, 8:30-2:30. This new schedule starting in July will give me plenty of one-on-one time with Delaney, and will still offer plenty of time for summer fun with Piper!

Speaking of summer fun, so far our summer has been filled with so much friend and play time for the kids! I couldn't be happier to be re-engaged with family and friends after so long of needing to keep distance. The month of June is packed with back-to-back tball games and weekly visits with our life group friends. 

Here are some pictures from the past week:



The time is flying by but, that's what happens when you're having fun, right?!
