Summer Schedule 2012

Wow! This year has surely flown by! As our summer break begins, I am faced with moving from mommy-running-all-over-town-around-school-schedule to Teacher Mommy. In the past I have done Alphabet Days and Hubbard's Cupboard, but this summer I'm going to give 2 Teaching Mommies a chance. I have been dabbling a little with their website during this past school year to see if it is something I could adjust for my 7, 6, and 3 year old children (see here, here, and here). I feel confident this summer will a fun one.

Below you will find my basic Summer Schedule and this summer's Curriculum Guide. My GOAL for this summer is to blog on Fridays what we did the previous week (because the current week won't be over yet). For those of you who are local (Charleston, SC area), I will also be adding the "field trips" I will be doing with the kids. We will not be going every week (and some of the field trips may be a stretch to fit into the themes), but I don't want to keep my kids cooped up all summer in my house. We will be going to Breakfast Club every other Friday morning still, so the field trips may or may not be on the same day...I'm still working out the kinks in those plans. :)  Please feel free to comment and/or add suggestions.
