How long is summer vacation??

IMG_1937a It seems like just a couple of weeks ago that Maisie started at Mother's Morning Out but oh my gosh, look how much she has grown up!! Today was her final day for this year and we now have until August 26 or fourteen weeks of summer vacay until the new year starts, oh my!! Maisie does best when we have activities planned five mornings a week and then have our afternoons to do errands, plan activities here or there or to play by ear. Fourteen weeks people, that's a lot of time to plan new activities especially when I've had two days a week filled with MMO for the past nine months. Then there was our music class on Wednesday mornings which we ended back on April 2nd so it's really three mornings a week for which I needed to find replacement activities.
First day 
My difficulty in finding activities for Maisie is that most of the summer programs available locally are for children over five years old with a handful for those as young as three. Trying to find a summer program for a two year old which lasts more than an hour, one or two days a week is very limited. Thankfully though I have found two great programs for Maisie to attend this summer and I know that she's going to love both of them.

For 6 weeks, June 3rd to July 10th, Maisie will attend summer camp, Outrigger Island Adventure, at one of the local churches. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 9am-1PM Maisie will be doing crafts, games, water & outdoor play, music, listening to stories and having picnic lunches all of which sounds like a fun time to me. Then for three weeks, July 14th - August 1st also Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 9am - 1 PM, she'll be attending The 2008 Olympic Dreams Gymnastics Summer Camp at the North Metro Gymnastics Center where she is currently enrolled and taking gymnastics classes. Maisie loves, loves, loves her gymnastics classes and when she walks out into the gym she is fearless. Where usually loud noises and crowds make her shy away and fearful, when she's in the gym she doesn't even notice all the people and the noise. We currently attend gymnastics classes on Wednesday afternoons and will continue to do that class throughout the summer except for the weeks she'll be at gymnastic camp.

I think that it sounds like a fun summer of activities and I hope that Maisie enjoys it all even with having two weeks at the beginning and three weeks at the end spending 24/7 with her dear old Mom.


  1. I think that sounds like an awesome summer of fun! (Shoot, can you do our summer schedule too? I'm so last-minute that the girls miss out on tons of cool stuff like this)

    Sounds like you have it all figured out! What a great schedule for Maisie. We have a few things planned but for the most part, we will be home getting ready to move. When we get there, we will have the lake and a pool- not to mention all the unpacking we will have to do. I'm looking forward to the full schedule. The girls get out of school next Friday and go back Aug 1- our summer will fly by I am sure. Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  3. Gosh! She's gotten so much bigger! Completely lost her "baby" look!!!

    I love a woman that's organised!! Sounds like loads of fun!

    She looks so grown up! And sounds like a fun summer!

    Wow - you have a busy that age my kids (and I) were content to stay home, snuggle, read books. do puppet shows, ride trikes, garden, (look for bugs) go to the park and swing, (not all in the same day!) and - after lunch and a nap, when the pool opened go there in the afternoon to play and stop for a snow-cone.......

    I can' imagine going somewhere 5 mornings a week!!! You have much more energy than I ever did!

    Mom to the amazing Ava and Ana

  5. She is sooo cute. SOunds like you have some great activities planned. My kids are out of school Friday. I haven't thought of a thing. You are way ahead! What a great summer you will have.

  6. I can't believe how much Maisie has grown! She is just beautiful!

    Sounds like she is going to have an awesome summer! When Briana gets a little older, I think we may have to look into those gymnatic classes!
