Summer is now 1 week into the history books. Parenting during this time is a mixed bag. Suddenly 5 individuals who usually are apart for a good chunk of the day now together all day…after day. Our summer schedule is “KEEP BUSY!” Idle time results in overwhelmed people, usually the adults.
My first teaching week “off” has been anything but off. Learning new technology, educational readings, answering emails, participating in chats, tweeting, and I could go on, but teachers reading this understand.
Olaf talks about having his snow up in the sand getting gorgeously tan. Mine will be in a chair, phone or computer near, getting grossly underpaid to work during Summer.
Now back to the regularly scheduled programming, parenting. 7:00 is too early in the summer.
