Ahhhh! I'm sitting here getting to enjoy a few hours of quiet house all to myself! Well, just me and the critters, two parakeets, one dog and one hamster. My kids are all at our church at Vacation Bible School Day Camp. The older two are helping with the preschoolers, while my youngest is enjoying his last year as a camper.
Many kids go to various camps during the summer. I think it's a great chance for especially homeschooled kids to get a chance to spend some time with friends. In my two older kid's case, they are getting a chance to learn how to serve. Building that responsibility muscle! Ok, so it's not actually a muscle, but you get the idea.
It's also great for mom! Did I mention that I'm getting to enjoy having no kids at home for a few hours?? I was able to get a great workout in, and now I'm getting to get some work done without kids constantly interrupting me. The only downside is that this week is going to be over all too fast for me!
When was the last time that you got to have a few hours all to yourself?? Perhaps it's time!
