    1. 6

    2. YES! I may be even more excited than the kids are.

    3. No homework and no schedules. Just lots of fun.

    4. Besides the heat, I'm dreading the fighting between the girls. It usually takes them a couple of weeks to adjust to sharing better and playing together.

    . How many days of school are left? We are done on the 24th

    2. Are you excited for Summer break? Well it is different this year because the 1st year I am working in the summer. I normally am but now have to coordinate way more stuff!

    3. What are you looking forward to the most about Summer? I am looking forward to some vacations and mini vacations we have planned

    4. What are you looking forward to the least? daycare cost However it ends up I am only paying for 6wks this summer which is great. And they are going to Y camp for those weeks they will have a blast. And it is full time care so I really can take some "me" time to get some stuff done ect.

    But most of all I am looking forward to the normal summertime swimming pool time, trips the zoo ect. Just a bit sad as I am working this year and it will be an adjustment for us. Tre is having a bit of a harder time with that than Henry but I have lots of fun stuff planned!

    1. Officially, 10. School is getting out earlier this year because of construction expanding the campus. Unofficially, 7 be ause we are headed to the UK.

    2. Yes

    3. Our trip to the UK and our week in Maine later this summer.

    4. That I will be turning 50. Upside we are going to go to one of my favorite restaurants, Chez Pannisse. It should be re-opened by then. They had a small fire causing it to close temporarily.
    sarah0323 responded:
    1. 4 days

    2. Yes and No. Yes I get to spend some time with the kids. This is the first summer that I will actually be home with them. No because the boys don't do well with out the routine of school

    3. Swimming, trips to the zoo and the discovery center.

    4. More therapy appointments. The heat and the arguing that will happen between the kids.

    1) We still have 4 weeks. The Bigs get out on June 12 and the Little is done the Friday before that.

    2) Yes, I'm excited for them- I remember how much I loved the end of each school year! I also love the mellower mornings we have during the summer. We still get up and moving each morning but there's something to be said about having an 8:45am departure as oppsed to 7:30 am.

    3) I love the longer days and am looking forward to more tennis, swimming and our family bike rides. I'm also excited about our travel plans and their summer camps.

    4) Some of THOSE longer days...

    seeit2 responded:
    1. 15

    2. Yes and no. I already struggle to get any "me" time - it will be harder in the summer months. But it will be really nice to have my babies to myself for awhile.

    3. Baking in the yard and playing in the pool. Setting my own schedule. My mom and brother may come to visit, that would be fun.

    4. I'm praying the A/C holds out this year. 105* without air is just cruel. Otherwise, the fighting and refereeing and attempting to keep everyone busy when they need distraction.

    1. 16 but that includes; field trips and other end of year activity days.

    2. Yes

    3. Going to see my dad at the end of June.

    4. I'm in the middle of trying to find day care for both kids for the summer and not having much luck.
    cinder44 responded:
    1. How many days of school are left? 8 days

    2. Are you excited for Summer break? somewhat, my kids will be going to day camp instead of their daycare center

    3. What are you looking forward to the most about Summer? vacation, relaxing by the fire, swimming at the pool & no schedules other than work & getting them to the Y in the morning so they can go to camp

    4. What are you looking forward to the least? I really don't like change. We have been going to their current daycare since before they were 3 . Now we are changing it up for the summer. They are really excited & we get to save some money in the long run. I think they will be returning to the daycare in the fall for after school care though.
