The Last Day

Tonight is a school night.

Last night was the last non-school night.

So I read a bit extra to Crash. We’re reading Harry Potter. We’re nearly done the fourth book, now. Just a few chapters left. We’re going to watch the movie once we finish the book. The book doesn’t scare him. He thinks the movie will, though.

That makes tonight a school night. We’ve been getting the kids into a regular routine at bedtime again. We started last week. You know, making sure they’re clean, eat their bedtime snack (which they invariably try to turn into meal), brush teeth and in bed to read and sleep at a decent hour. Here it’s lights out between 7:30 and 8.

Crash is awesome at waking on time to get ready for school. He’s so good he doesn’t need an alarm or to be woken by us. He’s awake between 6 and 6:30. On school days. On weekends. On holidays. Even if he stay up until midnight (like last New Year’s Eve).

Bang, on the other hand, is a different story. He likes his sleep. Some mornings I’ve tried to wake him and he rolls over and tries to go back sleep. Little bugger. He also likes to take his time in the morning. He’s not one to jump out of bed and run downstairs to eat at 7am. He’s one to run downstairs to go play for a bit at 8am.

Today is the last day of summer vacation. We made it to the beach several times. We didn’t get out camping though. Perhaps we can fit that in this fall. I’d love to make it to Cape Breton’s Highland National Park… it’s stunningly beautiful in the fall.

Today is the last day of summer vacation. We made it out kayaking a few times. We can keep going through the fall, too. We just won’t be stopping for a swim any more.

It’s the last day of summer which means the trampoline will be coming down in a month. We store it away for the winter in attempt to make it last longer. Wet, heavy snow on a trampoline doesn’t do good things to it. Mowing should be slowing down, too. Which is a bummer because that’s how I get all my steps in for the day.

Today is the last day of summer vacation which mean Crash will start having homework. He hasn’t had homework in… well never. I know Finland says they never give homework and Finland has the best education system. But I think a bit of homework is necessary. What are your opinions on homework? Necessary evil? Or are there better things to do with their time?

It’s the last day of summer vacation which means tomorrow will be the first day of the school year! Our last child’s first day of school…. I’m nervous excited.
