She scored the last spot in Moana summer camp in July. And also a week each of Nature Explorers, Music with Art (with her favorite instructor, Hot Damn!), Scrap Camp and a week of Swimming meets Gymnastics at the rec center. 100% not taught by me! So she will be blazing a trail all on her own. Which is a whole new world for her. Plus, it means no lazing around this summer! Busy, busy, busy.
After a successful year in kindergarten she doesn’t seem ready to slow down anyway. Regardless of what the calendar says 👏👏👏. Which is just fine by my standards.
BUT! We ain’t slacking at home either. My hands are still a little shaky and I’m not quite finished but this was our project for the day. After punching out roughly 200 glitter circles, she’s already busied herself cleaning her room (“I feel so proud right now!”) and organizing the cabinets. She’ll earn her allowance IF every space is filled at the end of the week, in addition to .25 for every book she reads to me. (Ended the year on level J! Haaay)
I even added 3 Freebie circles later for each week which she didn’t quite understand for some reason. I said “just be grateful” and we moved on. She’ll understand when the sun is setting and she’d rather play Minecraft.
After all the wasted time, wasted emotion and bullshit deviation from life in the last two months, I’ll only have to forego one week of summer school when all is said and done. And I won’t be missing any little Dolphin or Shark classes! Which would have warranted many a frownie face from me. I waited over a year for that 😭😭😭
I thought I was going to have someone to spend my summer with, but I won’t. Fell short by just a few weeks and never got that far. My plans and hopes for my future may have changed quickly and hurt in a ridiculously drastic manner, BUT I will be that much more grateful for any Freebie Circles that might happen to come my way from here on out. Back to Business.
