And by home, I mean, school is out and if there are any activities to be
planned or to incorporate into their daily schedule, it's up to me.
And as of this moment....I got nothin'.
And usually I like to have a plan. I may not always stick to the plan.
But I like to pretend that there is a modicum of organization in my life.
I mean, I kind of have a plan for myself.
That would be the sleep in plan. And the no more lunchbox plan.
I am real happy about those plans. Real happy
But the plan about keeping 3 small boys 7 and under, occupied,
on the move and yet not being destructive, for 3 months?
That is the plan I don't have.
And the thing is, they have so much energy.
They are not down with the 4 hour nap plan.
Because I would surely incorporate that plan if they were.
I've considered the run endless laps plan but if they
run that means I have to run and I get terrible side cramps.
I remember them vividly from the last time I ran in 4th grade.
I would like a plan that didn't involve a whole lot of tv
and computer, not that I don't love a good round of tv watching,
but after a while they get that glazed over I-just-lost-some-brain-cells look.
And I would like a cheap plan, one that doesn't require hundreds of dollars
for equipment or classes or amusement park passes.
And this is simply because I don't have hundreds of dollars for
equipment or classes or amusement park passes.
Otherwise, I would totally be on that plan. Because that could be fun.
What I'm saying is, I am headed into summer with three vivacious
boys, a handful of broken crayons and a blow up pool with a slow leak.
And that is no kind of plan to have. So I guess this is a plea for prayer.
Pray for me. Pray for a plan. Or maybe just pray for my kids.
Because...I have no plan.
