summer's here...

...and max is bored. well, maybe not bored, but needing some structure, something to do. ok, so maybe its mom that needs something for max to do. yesterday was his first day of summer...officially the first day he would normally have gone to preschool and didn't. the first day i began thinking, "what am i going to do all day? what is max going to do?" i am pretty amazing and turned to that brilliant sister of mine. she suggested getting a workbook. you know, so max could keep up on his colors, numbers, letters, shapes, all the stuff he just learned in preschool. also to give him some structure and homework and something to do. cuz you know, at 4 years old, homework is still pretty fun! we picked this up today:
we got home from the store, had some lunch, put luke down for a nap and max immediately turned to his workbook. we opened it up and found some pages for him to color and trace and match. wow. he spent the better part of an hour working at his coloring and was having such a great time! maybe this will help him retain some of his new knowledge while allowing me to get a few things done. thanks marisa for the good mommy tip.

I am always looking for workbooks for Caleb and have had a hard time finding something that he would like to do and something that is on his level. Where did you find this? I think I need to get one.

I've bought some at Costco in the past that the girls liked. Now that Kaylee is in grade school, I'm using the Summer Bridge series. It gets them between grades- but they also have preschool level stuff. I buy the next grade she'll be in to push her a little. You can also buy a specific subject. This will be a math summer! I get them at the teacher education store here in CA.
