End of termitis plus ideas for school holidays

Pretty much everyone at the Planning With Kids’ house has come down with a serious dose of end of termitis, including me. I feel like the runner staggering to the finish line of a marathon!

We are all very much looking forward to the school holidays starting from the end of today. My lovely youngest sister was visiting last night and after the third child had some form of melt down, I turned to her and simply said “It is end of term.”. As her only child (second child is due in a month) is only two, she is yet to experience the end of term tiredness meltdowns. I hope they didn’t scare her too much!

I had been considering the end of term and the fullness of the last few weeks a lot this week and have decided my plan of action for the school holidays – rest and fun. We need a lot more of both in our house.

So tonight after school we will sit down together and use this spreadsheet to plan out our next two weeks of fun and relaxation. Thanks to opportunities from the blog, I have a couple of surprises for the kids which should put me in the “awesome mum” category – well at least for a moment or two!
