So, our wrangler this time is Sharon and we have the topic of being playful and having fun! With three children around, that’s not always easy nor is it hard! Well, it’s not hard for the kids in question! Jenna Matlin’s entry is before me, so welcome if you’ve come from her post or landed here as normal 😉
So what do you for fun? For me, I remember the long hot summer days in my middle teen years, not that we’ve seen much of that in recent years this side of the pond! However, any hint of nice weather and my eldest two are clambering to get outside to their playhouse or torment the dog with one of her toys.
The six week school holidays are coming up, and I’m hoping that the kids get to copy The Sun card to the right and get to not only enjoy the sun, but to live it, grow and have fun in the warmth that this time of year promises, but doesn’t ever guarantee.
The kids will also be wanting to do so much over the upcoming break, from swimming to camping, playing on their DS’s to running in the park and eating ice-cream’s. What won’t be too much fun will be the pre-school shopping for shoes and trousers. Ya-ya-ya!! 😉
It’s my job to be the nurturer, disciplinarian, security guard, bank manager, chief cook, bottle washer, laundry and cleaning lady, baby sitter and Tarot Reader all rolled into one. Not that this six week holiday will be different from last years, but this time we might get to have a picnic lunch or two out in the garden, as well as going to the fairs and having fun there. As well as singing as many songs as we can – just because we can! That’s my usual list of talents, but add in writing, blogging, teaching and the summer weeks promise to be a whole load of fun!
No doubt we’ll have lots of time colouring in, creating coloured windows (from old cereal boxes and tracing paper), reading and lots of other things, as well as just doing as we wish to, because time now allows it.
The baby will be having fun blowing bubbles, raspberries whilst going through the fun of weaning and getting bigger each and every day. That’s her job, along with sleeping and doing other baby things.
I am looking forward to the fun of the summer, regardless of the what the weather throws at us. The trick is to just go with the flow. Nit that I have much choice with three wonderful, fun loving kids around! Alison Coal’s entry is next, so with one foot in the air, hop off and read what she says about the fun and faeries!
