Summer Vacation and Just Being a Kid (sigh...) - Day 21 of 365 in a Newborn Baby's Life
Day 21 of 365:
Today, the kids woke up and decided to do this before breakfast:
They geared up and put on their Halloween costumes. Yes, we already bought them costumes a few months ago. We saw them on clearance at the Disney store for like $12 each. We couldn't resist the savings. They grabbed their generic non-licensed lightsabers ($15) and went into full kid mode.
I was great to watch them just 'play.' This is how I did summer vacation as a kid. Just using my imagination and figuring out how to have fun with what I had or things around the house. Remember those days?
This vacation, I resisted to over-scheduling them for back to back to back summer camps. It is too expensive and they are already over scheduled during the school year. Their school is very competitive/demanding even in the 2nd/3rd grade. It is like training little adults. So, I believe summer break is the time they should wind down and just be kids. We are lucky to have this option since I am a stay at home dad. Plus, they are lucky to have each other only one year apart in age. So, I'm a happy geek father today as this is exactly the stuff I want them to do during the summer.
I got them to have a momentary galactic truce so I could take a quick snapshot.
It was a good morning, the wife even made pancakes.
Here's the daily portrait of the baby for future timelapse:
Thanks for following along with us.
Here are the last two days in case you missed it.
