I love my summers with my parents in Eugene. It couldn’t be any different than our routine in New York, and I love the change of pace both for me and for our family. Not very glamorous or fashionable or social; but very nature-centered, kids focused, with lots of fresh air. Take a look.
I wake up very early and do my morning workout before the kids eat breakfast. I just get up, and do it. Then, after the kids are fed and dressed, I take Cruzzie to camp (in the car). From there, Tusia and I start our day of Tusia-Mama Camp (the oh so exciting camp) which means:
Then, we eat lunch and rest / nap (Toosh dropped her nap 9 months ago, but this summer, we have been napping most days!) and at 2:15 pm go pick up Cruzzie from camp on my dad’s tandem bike for our afternoons together.
In the afternoon, we do family activities, such as:
After the kids crash, we eat dinner, watch the Olympics (which means I fall asleep on the couch) and hit the sack early. Now that we are fully set into our summer routine, it is almost over…..and I am grieving its end already. I love Eugene summers.
