I’m in that CRAZY busy last week of school–two and half more days. Today is PLAY DAY and I’m volunteering in the afternoon. It’s really the only consistent volunteering I’ve done every single year (I love play day, or field day as some schools call it.) Anyway … running out the door this morning to a doctor’s appointment and lots of errands, but I wanted to show you that I’m making progress on My Favorite Summer.
I’ve got my Close To My Heart board books covered and I’m planning the order/flow of pages inside. We decided our first weekly topic will be favorite movies. I’m taking Trey, Taft and Addie to Utah to visit Darci (leaving Saturday) and Geoff and big boys will be home. So, we won’t be all together, but we’ll watch favorite movies in the van and with Darci and the big boys will watch here at home. Geoff promises he’ll take photos for me.
We watched Geoff’s MOST favorite movie, The Sting not too long ago (February?), so we are going to kick things off on Thursday night with Swiss Family Robinson (and yes, I’m making Clark and Chase stick around!) I haven’t seen that movie in 25 years!
I’m using my THINGS app to help me capture ideas, words, daily activities, etc. for each person. My intention to create a list on one page of each book (more on this soon.) I’ve set up word documents for each person. These list pages will be each person’s favorite color.
I got some really good additional ideas from comments you all left–so thank you.
Speaking of iPhone, I tried to pre-order my new 4G yesterday, but the white one is NOT yet available. I was bummed, but figured I’ve waited this long, I’ll just hold out for what I really want (I mean, look how pretty it is?!)
Ok, gotta run — have a GREAT day!
