School is out and the pool is open. We are officially celebrating the start of summer. Bear and I are working on a Summer Fun List and my husband and I are working on a summer to do list.
So far we have enjoying a more relaxed schedule, Bear is in camp in the mornings so I can go to work and now we are settling into afternoons together. Right now he is settling into a nap. 6 years old and I think he would gladly go back to napping every day. He would argue and fight it, but he seems to need a midday siesta. I’ve been trying to figure out the best bedtime schedule for our family, summer is a time when we naturally stay up a little later, but we still rise early. I think a few naps a week would be ok for Bear. September, 1st grade and a long school day will be here in a flash though, but I think I will let our natural rhythms lead through June and July. In August we will have to ramp back up to a more school friendly schedule.
How is your summer schedule different than your school year schedule?
