I also tried to plan something special each day.
MONDAY: We went for snowcones and then Allie went to swim with her cousin Jake and spend the night!
TUESDAY: Allie took a test at Kumon that she worked really hard and did 40 pages of review over the weekend. She rocked the test and only missed 3 addition problems & 1 subraction problem.
WEDNESDAY: We picked up her bestie Ms.Jazzy and went to McDonald's
Also on Wednesday we made our own popsicles! This was a favorite childhood memory I had making with Ms.Karen! We made them the exact same way that I made them with Ms.Karen by using koolaid.
Then I let her pick a place to go eat lunch so we went to jimmy johns!
What I have learned: I am so happy to be emotionally connected to my girls. For a long time I was just trying to do all the "HAVE TO'S" and survive life that I missed out on the enjoyment of my girls. I need to take more time to do little things like make popsciles and go down water slides!
