Summer Activities

26 Jun

Now that we are more settled in our new place and baby is on a schedule, I’m ready to get Katie into some summer activities.   She loves being around other kids, and certainly loves to perform.  Just last night at Target, she held court in the accessory department with a crowd of about 5 watching her sing into a little microphone and dance around.  As she ended each song, she would shout ‘HEY HEY!’ and then bow.  People walking by would clap and say she should be on American Idol.  My little performer.  Andrew suggested we put out a little hat for tips.

I signed her up for a ‘Storytelling, Singing & Dancing’ class that starts in 2 weeks – a few days after we get back from our vacation.  It is for one hour each week for 5 weeks.  This girl LOVES to sing and dance, so I think it will be perfect for her.  Also, I lucked out and the classes are held about one block from my house, so we can walk to and from (thus saving gas and parking fees.)  If you are from California, you know we drive EVERYWHERE, so walking the block will be a new experience for us (and GREAT excersise!)

Once those classes are over, I enrolled her (just this morning!) in swimming lessons.  It would have been nice to get them before the vacation, but that is okay.  She’ll still have one on one time with both me and Andrew in the pool/lake this coming week.  She is like a little fish already and LOVES to be in the water, and can get around pretty good with just her floatie jacket on.

What are your kids doing this summer?

    My kids are also doing the swim lessons. We tried to get them to go to Camp Crawdad, but because it is a free camp everybody from a 50 mile radius showed up with thier kids. And only 6 counslers. Who are teenagers. They will not be going back. I think I will try and get a couple of them in guitar lessons instead. Maybe tumbling.

    Don’t forget about Boy Scouts… remember Andrew said you could probably get them in on ‘scholarship’!

    We homeschool all year, take a week off every month instead, so our schedule stays pretty constistent all summer.

    Ooh, a week every month sounds way better to me!

    Dance class sounds so fun!! We took the kids to our pool last week, and Ezra almost drowned b/c he wanted to do everything himself. 😀 I didn’t sign up for classes this summer… I relapsed and started staying home all day again. Can’t seem to coordinate naptimes, feeding times, and activities! Tirsa will only eat in a dark room, lying down, with no distractions. How are you doing it??

    Well, baby is really easy! Much easier than Katie… he plays in his crib happily, loves to roll around on the floor, and is mastering the art of holding his own bottle. He’ll eat anywhere in any position in any lighting… lucky me!

    That dance class sounds amazing! My middle daughter would love that too! My girls are getting ready to go to camp.. when they get back everything is in full gear. Emma is playing soccer and Cori wants to take a dance class (still looking). Liv is going to start going to a community are class one day a week. Isn’t summer so fun!

    YES! I am really looking forward to taking her. 🙂

    That class sounds like a hoot! We are doing ballet, tap and jazz camp for K2, Hip Hop and Soccer camps for K1, K3 is taking several mini camps in different dance disciplines and Little Critter is taking her first creative movement class. They are going to wear me out!
