This summer, we are hiring a full-time nanny to take care of the kids while they are off school. There are many different camps available in our area, but I prefer for the kids to get to stay and play at home, or go to the pool, and just have unstructured time in the summer. The girl we got to watch the kids is fabulous. She is going to be a teacher in the fall, but has nothing to do this summer, and was looking to make some money. It was a win-win for both of us. I am writing up a basic schedule for them during the day. So far, I have: eat breakfast (she will get to our house at 8), get dressed, brush teeth, go to the library or park, eat lunch, have a nap, wake up and watch a show on our Satellite TV Michigan, have a snack, read books, play outside. I should be home every day by 4:30, so I think this sounds like a really fun schedule.
