I for one am ecstatic that school is coming to a close. Stella had her last day on Friday and Harlo just has a few fun days filled with ice cream parties and the like this week. I will bring her home tomorrow after her Kindergarten graduation and they will be all mine all summer!
I threw together some little summer packages that were gifted to the girls last night for family home evening (or #millerFHE if you follow me on instagram). The girls were given their packages (that promote good summer habits) and we talked about good habits and making good choices – even (and especially) when others choose differently than we do.
In their summer packages were:
A journal and pens to document our summer adventures, starting with a love letter from their mother. I will be encouraging the girls to take a time out of each day to write a little story or draw a picture about our day. It is also a good way to keep them writing and drawing and being creative through the summer when they’re out of school. They are very excited and are taking this journaling business very seriously – as I knew they would. :)
A super cute mug for H2O – These will be our water-only mugs. This summer when it’s 110 degrees outside, I want them to stay hydrated so we are going to work on drinking a full mug of water each day. Did you know your kids should be getting half of their body weight in ounces of water each day? I think a cute mug will help!
A package of watermelon bubble gum – because nothing says “it’s summer and I’m out of school” like watermelon bubblegum. (Plus it’s a Miller Lady Fave)
A giant package of sidewalk chalk to keep those creative juices a flowin’. (plus: chalked sidewalk = happiness in my eyes)
One classic novel (each) that we will be reading over the summer – plus a few more hopefully! We will be kicking off summer with Stuart Little and starting the Little House series! Can’t wait for that.
I picked my stuff up here and there, but I’ve linked to similar if you want to toss one together for your little summer babes. :)
Hooray for Summer!!
