With summer quickly approaching, the time to start planning my sanity is now. Unlike summers in the past, this summer is going to be filled with firsts, and lasts. As a brand new teacher, this will be my very first summer break. I am not exaggerating when I say that we teachers have been counting down the days since August. With Aidan starting Kindergarten this year, this is his last summer as a preschooler. Where did the time go? While I am not certain of this answer, I do know that many moms can relate. I am now racking my brain for ideas to keep the kiddos busy this summer. I have always admired my neighbor’s gardening skills. On the contrary, my house is like a hospice house for ferns. I have zero gardening abilities, but what better time to change that than during my first summer break? I have the next 3 months to hone my skills and get outdoors. Gardening with kids will be a challenge, but after doing some pretty extensive Google research I’ve decided that it will be possible!
