Today is our first day of summer vacation. I have been super busy over the month of May. But as of today all of our school stresses are over. Also, Cub scouts are done for the summer. American Heritage Girls are done for the summer.
While there are a lot of things that I wont have to do like get up for school, quiz the kids on school work, help with school projects etc. there are some things that are in full swing now. We have to get our 4H projects up and running. We have to have J study for the ACT, look for colleges, find a newer vehicle, apply to colleges, apply for scholarships etc. That will keep him busy all summer, I’m sure.
I am planning on keeping fit. My friends and I are working on a workout schedule for the summer. So far we plan to workout at 7 or 8 am, 5x per week. I am planning on doing Cross-Fit 2x per week, a spinning class 1x per week, a long run on Saturdays, a 3 mile run 1x per week, and sprints 1x per week. That should help me achieve my goal of running the 5k without stopping by the end of the year.
I am excited to be less scheduled than I have been. The kindergarten year of being at school 3x every day has worn me out! The good news is that I don’t have to do that schedule for 5 years when L is in Kindergarten. In the fall everyone except L will be in school all day. It is good, but a little sad at the same time. This is the first time in 14 years that I won’t be at school during midday to pick up a preschooler, a pre-kindergartener, or a kindergartener.
I’m ready to have some fun, relax, and get some stuff done around this house. I have my garden in and I will include pictures in my next post.
Here’s to a fun summer!
