Summer of themes

Originally published at You can comment here or there.

Life with a kid who has been in some sort of programming every day of the week is surely different from a kid who only had programming twice or three times a week. Since David’s been in kindergarten, he requires more activities to keep him happy during the time that he’s at home (as experienced during winter & spring breaks). With this in mind, I have concocted a plan: every weekday has a theme…for the rest of the summer.

Examples of those themes:

-Chimborazo Day (a volcano…yes, we’re making one!)

-Create with your heart day (lots and lots of art!)
-Helen Keller day (blindfolds and braille and no talking! j/k)
– Cheer up the lonely day (visiting the elderly!)

-Meteor Day!


I got most of the themes/holidays off of this website.


I am a wife, mother, all around volunteer, and organizer of all that is around me. No, really, it is pathological, I can't help it. If you need help, you ask me, I help. I have a few chronic illnesses that try their hardest to slow me down, but my brain is the Energizer Bunny of brains and it demands that I try to do everything and try new things and keep going all the time. So here I am, blogging about it all.
