School's Out for Summer

It's official.  My life is now exponentially busier.  My older children are out of school for the summer.




To say thank you to the teachers that made a new school a great experience, I made these clipboards. I used the printable from Eighteen25.

It was a simple thing to print it out, decoupage to the clipboards ($1.25 at Wally World). The only thing that made me nervous was if the inkjet image would run a bit with the decoupage medium.  I applied a coat to the clipboard, then placed the paper.  I used a plastic spatula to carefully press out any bubbles.  When it was dry, I added two coats of medium to seal everything.

Now onto the summer.  I'm hoping to have something to look forward each day.  Here's the schedule...
Monday:  Chores and Laundry
Tuesday:  Library
Wednesday:  Music Lessons
Thursday:  Summer Home School
Friday:  Park Day

It is so nice to have everyone home.  Hopefully we can keep the fighting to a minimum.


They're too cute to fight...right???

As kids we used to fight constantly. I don't know how my mom didn't go nuts...

Sounds like a busy schedule but that's the only way to keep everyone happy, eh?

Those printables are perfect as well as your assistant! further -
thank you for the reality of this post. I find the most difficult aspect of parenting at this moment is the fighting. When they play nicely it is a moment which cannot be described in words. When the fighting starts...
I wish you a wonderful summer, with many memories.
