Summer Vacation and the Summer of Fun Tour

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Today, Sunday marks the first full week of summer vacation and I have decided quite a few things after school ended last week. Since this is the first summer I have off (being a teacher rules!!) and this is the first summer my kids are shipped off to Grandma's we are having the Summer of Fun Tour, each day something new and different. For me, we have 11 weeks until we go back to school, and I want to be 20 pounds lighter by then which starts the Summer of Small Tour!

The Summer of Fun tour began on Friday (the first official day of summer break). The girls and I went to the local Natural History Museum here in Cleveland. They have never been and I haven't been there since I was a kid. Saturday was our church festival. Today, is possibly the church festival again, and dinner at Grandpa's. Sunday is usually our day to clean and do yard work, so I think we will keep it that way for summer.

The Summer of Small Tour will be comprised of eating better, more fresh veggies, less chips, more salads and less fried foods, the small hot dog not the foot long, and picnics not drive-thru. Increasing my exercise with these trips in the Summer of Fun, and household projects around the house and walking or bike riding with the girls.

Here's to a Summer of Fun and a Summer of Small!!! Wish me luck - I'm gonna need it!

    Have fun! I think I just kicked off my prelude of summer fun by going downtown here in Chicago to our Navy Pier. I did the boat tour with my son & grandson. I want to try to do something fun every other week.

    God bless,
