Summer school

I think summer school is busier than any other school season. We are in the throes of activities right now. We still keep up piano lessons and we've got to practice some math facts. Then throw in swimming lessons, park days, bug camp, story time, summer reading programs, service learning, field trips, theater camp, Lego camp, gymnastics, family visiting and visiting friends. And that's just when we are not on vacation :) We've got to take breaks for the 4th of July, anniversaries, and family reunions!

It's been a really hot summer, so we've been trying to come up with fun things to do indoors on all those dangerously hot days. Our latest project is building the globe. We found ONE Ravensburger 540-piece globe puzzle on the red dot table at Barnes & Noble! Score! It's been a great project. I'd been wanting to get a globe and this looks to be a good starter. It's surprisingly sturdy. When it's all complete he can take the World Landmarks book I found at the Target dollar spot and see which landmarks he can locate on the globe. Fun! Inexpensive! Educational! And it beats the heat for this cool weather mom.

Southern Hemisphere complete!
