No extra-curricular summer courses for the boys were planned for this vacation. We did not enroll them since we initially planned a short trip within the month. However, due to some conflicts in our schedules, we decided to just postpone the trip for November during the boys’ sem break.
So what kept/keeps them busy? Matt went to China with his classmates. He’s due to be back this week after more than a month of immersion and studying Mandarin. For the other two boys (Kyle and Jake), it was more of just being home taking turns playing with their toys or watching tv. Ugh….
Much as I wouldn’t want them to spend most of their time sitting and playing virtual games, we let them be. However, we occasionally broke the monotony by taking them to the movies or to the mall for afternoon treats or to my mom-in-law’s place to spend time with her.
Anyway… it’s not too late to spice up their summer vacation, is it? There’s one more month before classes officially start for them. Yeah… I know, the trip or our schedule is a pretty lame excuse… If it’s any consolation, it’s knowing that 4 year old Jake already knows how to work my Mac. 😉
