Today is the last day of school. After this, the kids have 75 days of freedom (not that I counted or anything) before they have to return.
Usually summer is around 9 weeks, this year it's almost 11, with the early finish in June and late start in September. But I think the kids will make good use of the time and I just have to remember to take it one day at a time.
This is the most unstructured summer we've had since Alex was 3. I did that somewhat deliberately, thinking he and Nathan both needed a break from routine, but I can't help but feel nervous about it. Am I just setting myself up for fights and tantrums from boredom? Only time will tell.
I also rather foolishly took on a home improvement project. Clearing out the clutter in Dave's office so that I can use it during the summer. (Yesterday I was trying to talk to clients while Alex threw a head-banging and screaming tantrum in the next room. I need the option of a door to close.)
Dave's office has become a catch-all storage for things we don't quite need but don't want to stick down in the basement. It really needed to be cleared out and sorted through.
I'm looking forward to seeing Pure Antics at Coco Jarry's on Saturday for Alex's benefit concert. It's going to be fun!
