Summer Boredom or Relaxation…

I am a quiet person by nature. I like to be home, I like to have a regular routine to my day, I like to be able to get all my housework done without being rushed. Up until this summer, the kids have easily gone along with me, finding ways to play together and entertain themselves throughout the day. However, Naomi has only been out of school for 3 days and it seems like she is always wanting to “do” something! Apparently, “Go play with Barbies in your room while the baby naps” is not cutting it anymore! I’m so thankful for the cooler weather here, so she and Rachel can get outside during the day and run off their energy.

We are whole-heartedly taking advantage of the library and the park, and playdates with neighbors and friends. But the bottom line is that for this summer, we have a baby that takes two solid naps per day. And Sarah is just not happy if she misses a nap and neither is Mama. I’m fine with “sacrificing” naptime once or twice a week so that we can enjoy a longer activity somewhere, but any more than that and Sarah is really not happy. So it seems I am going to have to come up with some activities they can do when Sarah is sleeping or the weather is rainy or too hot for outdoor play. Activities other than watching “Tangled” every day would be ideal.

Does anyone have any suggestions??
