Memorial Day weekend officially kicks off summer and this article helps provide some great options for that obvious question, “What do I do with my kids all summer?”
The days are getting longer. The smell of freshly cut grass is in the air. The school bus drops your kids off, and the sound of their laughter fills your heart with joy. You can’t wait for summer break so everyone can be together spending time as a family.
Then your kids start fighting. You start sneezing from the breeze that kicked up new pollen off the lawn. You realize there are still hours of daylight left before you can send these crazy kids to bed and you forgot to defrost supper!
It only takes a moment for the blissful thoughts of summer to turn into a chaotic nightmare. How can you prepare for the transition of seasons and schedules so you don’t lose your mind? With a little planning (and a lot of patience), your family can approach summer goals with greater ease.
