The past few weeks I've felt like quite the planner... I have a list of things I want/need to plan and feel like I'm always sending out an evite for something.
- Game night this Friday
- Playdate this Saturday
- Bead for Life last Saturday
- Scrapbook Mega Meet the 2nd weekend in May
- Helping a neighbor plan a "Block Party" in May
- Scrapbook night last weekend
- Another game night and scrapbook night in May
- Camping trip in June with friends
And on top of that I have sessions I'm scheduling, Porter's soccer/swim lessons, and well, what else!
This summer I'm turning in to "Itinerary Queen".... last summer I felt like it was a complete wash. Had a baby, moved, moved again, worked on house non stop. This summer... I want to soak up my time with the boys and really do a lot of fun stuff.
Ryan is taking a few random days off during the week so we can skip on over to Lake Michigan or the Zoo (we have a trip planned in May already!). I am going to assign one day a week as our "Field Trip" day... our day to go to the zoo, a kids museum, blueberry picking, feed the ducks, visit the Alligator Farm (yes, we have an alligator farm in Michigan!). And once a week I want to take the boys to Nixon Pool. And then another day maybe set aside as a "standing playdate" day for whoever wants to meet up with us at the park for a picnic. And maybe another day have it be our library day. I also just purchased a membership to the Chelsea Treehouse and I would like to meet up with Lori and the girls once or twice a month since Chelsea is a good somewhat half-way point for us to meet.
(Hey everyone... they have a great deal going on... their normal 3 month membership is extended to 5 months and is HALF the price!! So, I got a membership from May 1-Sept 29 for both boys for $40... normally $80 for only 3 months!)I know... I'm nuts. I just... this time with the boys goes by so fast. I know cramming a bunch of stuff in is only going to make it go faster, but I want to have good memories with the boys... not memories of sitting at home counting down the minutes until naptime.
Ok... so how my post evolved into this I have no clue.
