Last Friday was my son's last day in school. Come to think of it, it relaxes me a little that I will not be waking up early for the next 2 months. For the past 3 years, since my son started to attend school, I noticed that even if he is on vacation, he still gets bored at home. When he entered primary school, I made it a point to prepare a line of activities for him. Things that will keep him busy and productive in the house. This year, my husband and I have decided to enroll him to summer school. Well that is, with our son's consent.
We've coordinated with the school as early as this month. This summer, the school is going to offer various lessons on arts and crafts, math, reading, language and "I think" music. My son is a hard core student when it comes to numbers. So since he's already good in Math, we're looking into enhancing his reading skills and/ or language and an additional of arts & crafts. These activities will surely prepare him for the next years and steps in school as he grows. Some students prefer a private tutor.
When it comes to a more physical activity, over the weekend, my husband and I took time to set- up the humongous swimming pool of my parents. I like the pool because the size is just right for the children to swim without the fear of them getting into an accident. At the same time, it's big enough for someone to learn how to swim. Even if we don't go to the beach as much this summer, at least there's an available place with a swimming pool we can go to enjoy a sunny day.
