Progressive playdate

Still loving summer!

Yesterday we had a spontaneous 'progressive playdate.' Started at L's house, worked on a slide-show for our playgroup summer picnic, while kids lunched and played outside. When L had to leave, moved onto S's house where 'dramatic play' inside ensued, (while S and I chilled outside planning the activities for said summer picnic). Since we were on such a roll, I invited everyone back over to our house for dinner (with husbands), where the kids played dress-up and admired E's 'Star Wars' Lego display.

Playdate time - 11:30 a.m. - 9:15 p.m. (45 minute break to regroup around 5 p.m.)

Are early mornings, school and routine really just a few weeks away?? Am I making the summer tooo fun for Miss P??

Thank goodness for me that I love the energy, excitement, and rhythm of school, learning new things (kids and me) and Fall - which I've decided is my second favorite season.

P enjoys learning, but has always preferred 'home days with mom' as opposed to pre-school days (see above - do I make it too fun?) : ) Here's hoping the *magical* kindergarten environment will dazzle her enough to put aside summer fun for another year.

We're going to make the most of the next few weeks!
