A break from summer break

Posted on

This week we took a little break from Camp Keep Mom From Going Batpoop Crazy! I am surprised that even with a break I didn’t completely lose my marbles! Here is a little of what we did:

We did A LOT of fighting and bickering over absolutely nothing and absolutely everything.


We went to the library and learned all about working out and being healthy. We even got to do a mini workout (which is always easiest when you stick out your tongue).



When we were finished working out we got to decorate our own personal water cups and enjoy a glass of ice cold water.

We spent some time at the pool (three days!).

We did some art projects using the fridge as an easel.

We finished off the week by going to the Independence Day Celebration, not winning a car, barbequing and watching fireworks with some great friends.

And Mom watched almost an entire season of Real Housewives of Atlanta and played candy crush got a lot accomplished around the house. The little break from summer break was nice but we are excited to get back to summer camp next week!


Mom is Not Crazy

Well the first full week of summer break is over and I haven’t gone crazy yet. This is mostly because of the most epic “Camp Keep Mom from Going Batpoop Crazy” ever! Every summer camp has an awesome t-shirt. In an effort to be awesome (and not lose any kids on outings) we made some awesome t-shirts of our own. I decided it was best if we left the name of the summer camp off of them. We are lucky to have some of our good friends doing summer camp with us this year.


The week started off rough with a pretty epic terrible three tantrum.

Once that was over we went to the library where I almost went completely batpoop crazy. My own kids were angles pretty well behaved. It was some other brats unsupervised children that were climbing all over the adorable furniture that made me twitch a little. Oh and I can’t forget the rude obnoxious adults that lack manners and entirely missed the life lesson, “Library is a quiet place!”


The next day we took advantage of the Africa hot weather and hit the pool. Don’t let the sad faces fool you, they had a blast. I forgot to take any pictures until it was time to leave!

What’s summer camp without field trips? Today we took a pretty epic field trip to Krispy Kreme for National Donut Day!

And then to help the wear off the twitchiness, spasms and high excitability caused by the sugar covered sugar circles donuts we took them to an awesome park!

We survived week one and we are not completely crazy yet! I would call that a success!
