Looking back at our schedule for the summer, you can see we haven't managed to stick to our original plans. I guess that's the beauty of planning something like Fun Jar - you just change the plans to suit your needs!
I have a stress fracture in my ankle that makes walking difficult, so this week's choice was limited by walkability. Kate's first suggestion of Cheekwood was quickly dismissed. Her sisters joked that I would have to say, "OK. I'll be by the lake if you need me." I replied that it would probably take me an hour to hobble TO the lake from the parking lot. Anna and Bekah responded by doing a mommy dance where they hobbled around our living room. Sadly, I did not get it on video for you.
If you are so inclined, we are going to the Adventure Science Center this Friday. While it does require walking, I often pick a spot to sit and read while my children play. I equip them with watches and have them check in with me periodically so that I can keep track of them. The selection of the Science Center has the added benefit of being air-conditioned, which is helpful given the heat and humidity outside.
Here are the details for Friday, July 27:
Place: Adventure Science Center (click here for directions)
Time: 10ish to 1ish (we will probably buy lunch at the Subway onsite)
Who: All ages - just know that you may need to hustle to keep up with younger children here
While MNPS schools start up next Wednesday, I hope to do a few more Fun Jar events throughout August. If you start school later, homeschool or have preschool children, feel free to join us!
