Before I even knew it, June was upon me! I always feel like I’m in a frenzy, trying to get things done. Working. Driving the kids. Other work. Soccer. Cooking. Cleaning. Taking care of the kids. More chores. Groceries. Working. You know.
So many of you have already entered the blissfulness of kids-are-home-for-the summer. For some of you this might be wonderful. For others, this may be terrifying. I have a love-hate relationship with school summer vacation. Yes, I love being able to do things with my family. But I have to say I really DO NOT like to take them to work with me. It seems like no matter what I do or give them, they are still constantly fighting, hungry, thirsty, wanting to sit on my lap, using all the tape, drawing on things they’re not supposed to…
But back to the fun part. What I like best about summer: memory-making. I love love LOVE knowing that I am making memories with my kids–the kind of memories I remember spending with my grandparents over the summer when my dad was working. Church camp. Ice cream. Fireworks. Museums. Outdoor activities. I loved fishing with my grandpa, playing wiffle ball in the back yard, playing in the lake. Going to the library. Ah, but we’ll save that for another day.
I realized I am way behind in revealing my summer calendar! I hope you will check out my summer calendar and come up with some awesome ideas of your own to fill in there as well! Oh, and while you’re here–let me know what you think and what your favorite ideas are!
