Ah, ABC Summer. Neglected again this week.
This was Genevieve's final week of soccer. As loyal readers may remember, we don't do many ABC activities during the three-week soccer session. By the time we've gotten to soccer every morning and then shoehorned in the necessary chores and errands of family life, we seem to easily fill what's left of each day with things like playdates, quiet time, and the pool. This week, for example, in addition to the few ABC activities below, we went to the pool (of course), visited the town square's popcorn cart, had friends over for a make-your-own-ice-cream-sundae party, perused a dollhouse exhibit at the library, went to gymnastics class (Julia), and later today we have a birthday party (Julia) and are hosting a playdate (Genevieve). At home, we worked on printable vehicle mazes, had a doll tea party, created sidewalk-chalk hopscotch boards on the driveway, and delivered home-baked goodies to five of our neighbors.
But. We did do a few things for B and Q week, and one activity is yet to come later today. So here you go, those of you who might be facing a long, unscheduled summer day and wondering how you could fill some of it.
* baked Banana Bread
* made Butterscotch icebox cookies
* colored Queen coloring sheets from Education.com
* did Q-tip painting (not yet actually, but plan to do it today)
