First mommy had to set some ground rules. I think it is always good to start off right.
We don't do summer camps. Here are our lofty plans for the warm days.
1. Vacation with family (our annual one)
2. Library Looting Time!
We love to be able to READ for fun this summer!!! We use goodreads to track our reading.
I intend to teach the kids more cooking in the summer. One thing I really enjoyed doing this year was to have a child help me at dinner every day. It has been wonderful and I think they have learnt quite a bit of life skills.
Big Sis' specialty is now Creme Brulee French Toast. They are SOOOO delicious.
Crack about 4-5 eggs.
Beat them with about a cup or more of milk and a tsp of vanilla.
Melt 1/4 cup butter (or more) and pour into pan.
Sprinkle brown sugar and then place bread on top.
Pour egg mixture over the bread.
Bake at 400 deg for about 10 mins, flip (now the gooey sugar mixture will be on top), broil for 2 mins. The top will be crunchy like creme brulee and the bread soft like pudding. SOOOO YUMMY!!!
4. LOTS of sun and play
We will be out at the playground A LOT. Riding bikes, playing, running...
5. Of course, we will still have to do some school to prevent rusting.
Mainly, they will finish their Rod and Staff English (probably takes less than half of the summer) and also Math (4B and 2B). They will also do some Chinese worksheets just for revision.
