Crazy Summer

12 Jun

When we moved in April, my original idea was to get a job ASAP.  Unfortunately that didn’t happen quickly.  And then I realized that the boys would be coming soon (today in fact).  With them here, if I got a job, I would have to pay for babysitting/child care and I wouldn’t be able to spend that much time with them.  Back in Nebraska, J worked at home, so he could be physically there with the bosy while I was at work.  That’s not the situation here.  So I will be holding off on the job hunt until towards the end of July.

This means that I will be home everyday with the boys.  I’ve been making a list of things we must do.  Currently the list includes:

  • Getting a library card (for the boys) and weekly trips; summer reading program
  • Sky High — trampoline bounce place
  • Great America — only 10 minutes from the house!
  • Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco
  • Alcatraz — J wants to go with, so this will be a vacation day or weekend trip
  • Scavenger hunt/photo scavenger hunt — I want to do one of these but haven’t even started thinking about the clues
  • San Jose Giants baseball game?
  • Beach trip — possibly Santa Cruz
  • Exploratorium in San Francisco
  • Summer camps — need to get a Sunnyvale account to sign them up
  • Most likely daily pool visits
  • Get together with an old friend and her kids — possibly at the Santa Cruz boardwalk or in Fresno (her town)
  • Possible bike rides — if they can get better at riding
Whew!  It’s quite a list and it’ll probably be growing.  We were going to go to Disneyland, but J won’t have much time off.  He said to just go alone with the boys, but that kinda defeats the purpose of a family trip.  We could possibly do this during Christmas Break…  Anyway, I think this is going to be a crazy summer!
I’m off to the airport to pick them up.  Hope the plane’s on time!
