Last night was a rough one. It’s like the boys have gone nuts the moment school let out for the summer.
Poor Elliott is devastated because he misses all his friends and can’t stand the idea of not seeing them until the Fall. Many tears have fallen since I picked him up from school yesterday.
Emmett on the other hand is firing off meltdown after meltdown because his whole routine has changed and he will have a new teacher next year.
I don’t think either of the boys really know what to do with themselves at this point.
Our goal for the summer is to have as much fun as possible and to do some really cool first time things for the boys, like camping. We want them to have an active summer and not spend it in front of the TV.
It’s likely to take a bit of time for them to adjust to the new routine of not going to school but I’ll do whatever I can to help ease the transition for them….
Last night was really challenging, especially in regards to Emmett. Bedtime was a truly nightmarish experience. That being said, the kids seem to be in a better place this morning and that makes me really, really, really happy.
Are your kids experiencing any transition difficulties this summer? What have you done or will be doing to help them transition from school to summer break? What behaviors are you seeing right now as your kids adjust to their new routine?
