BOY Week Begins NOW!

This week I am off work (except for one day) and I am the full time entertainer and partner in crime with my five year old.  The daughter is at church camp.  I was contemplating what in the world the small fry and I would do this week.  We must have fun and I must get some stuff completed around the hacienda.  My son is my easiest to appease child so I decided to make a little list of things we could do that wouldn’t make me want to take an ice pick to my eye balls.

Have a friend over to play.  Little Man begins kindergarten in late August and guess what?  He really doesn’t know a soul going to kindergarten at his school (except for two kids he previously had daycare with a couple years ago.) It just so happens one of the up and coming kinders is (read this slow so it sinks in) his sister’s bestie’s little brother.  All spring I said I was going to have the little dude over to play but it never quite worked out.  Well guess what…it does now!  I’m planning a day of all things little dudes with playing in the dirt, playing with Legos, and eating ice cream.

Swim.  You have heard me whine like a petulant child over the fact I am without a pool for the first time in eleven years.  Well I do have a YMCA membership and it is time to use it again.  It just so happens the Y we switched to has an outdoor water space so whooppeeeee!  And if there isn’t a pool then we have some really fabulous neighbors who have offered up their pool for our use.  It will be happening!  (Gina, I don’t know if you read but I will be calling you, friend!  And I will bring goodies to say thanks!

Speaking of the YMCA…I am starting back to work outs this week *yay!* While I work out my little pumpkin can go play with other kids in Kid’s Club.  That is a major win win since he’s always enjoyed that (as do I!)

And to be honest that is my list.  I went to Pinterest to find some ideas for fun things to do as well and thought I should do my due diligence and pass these along to you.

AW-esome! Set up a shoot and splash target practice in the backyard. Perfect summer activity for kids!
We are the proud owners of like twenty Nerf guns.  This looks like a perfect thing for my “let’s play army” boy.  Here’s the pin.

This makes me cringe buy my kid lives for nasty sour candy (especially Trolli Brites!)  I think we may have to try this just for him.  Here’s the pin!
