    Unless it's a trip that has to be planned out with some serious forethought (i.e. overseas) we don't do a lot of scheduling. There are loads of activities in the city closest to us, so we will spend lots of time there. We have one trip in July that will just be my son and myself. My sister-in-law is coming home while her husband trains in TX, so the boy child and I will fly to California, and then do a road trip cross country back with her and her daughter. The week before school starts we will spend in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge.

    We are flying back east for the first 2 weeks of June. We are spending the first 5 days up in the Muskokas at a cottage rental and then the remaining time with my family in Kingston, ON. I miss the water, man. Growing up on Lake Ontario sure makes me miss it in this semi-arid, land-locked province of Alberta! We are looking forward to the 1000 Islands and some tours of the local cheese factories and historical sites. We probably won't be hitting the beach as the water is still very cold in early June, but my brother has a pool and he's going to have it nice and warm for when we get there. Ben's never met his eastern cousins and Claire was so young the last time we flew back she wouldn't remember them.

    We are going to Fairmont, BC for DH's annual family camping trip for a week in early August. Some of you may recall me b!tching about it last year. We are really looking forward to camping May long weekend up at our family 'farm' about 1.5 hours northwest of here. Should be super fun this year, as many of our friends we haven't camped with in a while are all coming.

    We really don't have anything planned for this summer. I'm heading to NC for a few days for a wedding, but it's just going to be me. My oldest son (14) will go with our church to ASP (Appalachia Service Project) in July for a week. This year they'll be in TN for a week, working on homes.

    I'd love to do maybe a long weekend since I'll have Fridays off, but dh works nights and it kind of makes it hard to do anything.

We haven't figured out camps or classes or anything beyond two small road trips we are taking! Ugh, I feel like the worst planner ever.
    I'm telling you, sitter city! I love it. Found some one easy to watch the kids last year and I only put up a summer care wanted post yesterday and already have someone lined up for interviewing. Although mine was presented as full time...and somewhat enticing because most days they can leave by 3 instead of 5.

    We are going to NY for one week to visit family and for Seamus and I to go to a wedding. Other than that I have nothing specific planned. I may sign Emma up for cheering camp or lessons. Although I'm kind of in a mood to let all the camps and lessons and whatnot slide (which is why i haven't done it yet and really dont' mind if they are all filled up) and really have a free and unscheduled summer aside from me working that is. Oh and the kids keep taking music lessons through the summer.

    My older girls will continue on with their piano lessons throughout the summer.

    I do not see a problem with a parent not wanting their child to go to a year round preschool and keeping them home for the summer. If the parent is a teacher or someone who is home for the summer, then I can understand keeping the child home for the summer. If you felt that way though, it might be best not to enroll your child into a year round program.

    Year round school vs. a traditional school year would make for an interesting spin off.

    When I took piano I couldn't wait for my piano and theory exams to be over so I could have the summer off! Yeah, I had to learn a few pieces of my own choosing in the next grade before I started up again in the fall, but I LOVED not having lessons every week

    I think they enjoy the lessons. They are progressing very well. I had to make Alyssa stop practicing this evening and go to bed. Her teacher says when listening to her play you would think she was 10 or 11 and not almost 8. Brianna also does very well. I think they both have the potential of being very good if they stick with it.

    We have plans to hike to a different Oregon waterfall every week. Each summer we pick something like that to do, last summer we did a animal theme each week, zoos, wild animal rescues or wildlife preserves. Other then that I try not to plan to much stuff, we try to be pretty spontaneous.

    My oldest DD is taking some voice and guitar lessons, she is really hoping to get a big part in her school musical production next year
