I was so excited when my two girls finally went back to school. I love having them around, but it can get hectic during the Summer. Especially balancing a full-time job as well as two kids that we have to keep entertained for two months. My husband and I do what we can. We always plan a family vacation during the Summer for them. Additionally, we sign them up for weekly camps, gymnastic classes, and more, where they get to run around, play and enjoy their Summer. There were some days when they were home and I made sure that I had lots of games, arts and crafts, as well as other things for them to do. My favorite pastime with them is baking. And we purchased a cake pop machine for them, so we spent lots of time baking this Summer. We experimented with so many different types of cake pops and most importantly, the girls loved every minute of it. However, now that school is back in session, I feel less pressure and I can return to a normal schedule. So, you can imagine how bothered I was when after two days of school, they were sent home early because the air conditioner broke down. Of course, I don’t want my kids sitting inside a hot classroom, so that was the right decision to send them home. And I am truly grateful that they go to a school that has air conditioning. There are so many schools that still have not installed air conditioners, which means that those kids are forced to learn in hot classrooms. Nobody benefits from sitting in heat trying their best to pay attention. Anyway, I am now homeschooling my kids until the school can get the A/C fixed. Wish me luck.
