In Between Week

I love summer.

Wow – an in-between week! You know the kind of week I am talking about. Between camp and school. These weeks are challenging, to say the least.  After all, the children need to have a full calendar.

BR finished camp last week and he is headed off to grandma’s place next week. So this week was as an in-between week, a.k.a. “Daddy Day Camp.” Talk about bonding! Lots and lots and lots of bonding.

Each day we have had something on the calendar. We went swimming at the town pool on Monday and are going again today. On Tuesday, we saw Ice Age Continental Drift. On Wednesday, we went miniature golfing. Tried anyway. The wait was so long we just ended up playing at the arcade. Thursday was to be the crown jewel.

On Thursday, we went to Field Station Dinosaurs. This pricey exhibit (nearly $60 for the two of us) in Seacaucus, NJ, featured life-like dinosaurs. The dinosaurs moved and roared. Very cool.  For those who have kids that are crazy for dinosaurs, it is worth it. BR and I enjoyed it despite the hot weather. We both jumped at least once when a dinosaur roared unexpectedly.

I don’t know exactly how we will fill the rest of August (other than our vacation week). What I do know is I love summer. Even the in-between weeks. However, I may need some un-bonding space soon.

Off to the pool.

P.S. Next week, I have a new camper – SY.
