camp mommy

oh, the dog days of August.  Although the days are not sweltering, the summer is, sadly, coming to an end.  With just over 2 weeks of break left, I find myself smack dab in the middle of Camp Mommy.  What is this exciting camp you ask?  Let me explain.

My kids have no, I repeat NO, planned activities this week. So, I have dubbed it Camp Mommy and the boys think it is the greatest thing.  They are completely in charge of our week.

Here are the rules:

  1. They have been given a budget for the week. 
  2. They may choose any local activity but every cost must come out of their budget.
  3. Any food or drink ( or treats!) purchased during the day must also come out their budget.
  4. There must be at least 1 hour of physical activity each day.  This could include bike riding, swimming, a hike…..anything that gets them moving and burns some calories.
  5. They have to read at least 20 minutes each day. 

With Day 1 under our belts, it is off to a great start.  I will recap our week on Friday.  How are all of you surviving the last unstructured days of summer?
