Like all mom’s I am in a panic. 18 days left of school, how are we going to survive the summer? I am a planner, I love a schedule. My husband’s company is working on a new venture, which means I’m on my own. My son needs routine, the slightest upset can send him into tears. All while my daughter loves to sleep in, lazy days. I love that about her but that doesn’t work with little brother.
I am currently working on a Cheer bake sale, which will continue on and off all summer long trying to raise money for uniforms. I have been Pintresting my heart out as a nice distraction from the busy and end of school looming. How am I ever going to make a schedule out of this mess? Well frankly I have no idea 😂. I am determined to make the best of it.
My plan of action!
Find out the local libraries schedule, our library normally has a wonderful summer reading program that lasts a month.
Pick a Birthday party day! Both children have summer birthdays, having them help make decorations could fill some time with something productive.
Camping. We love to camp, and we love to camp with friends. Picking out a few weekends of camping can keep everyone busy.
Ice cream and park dates with friends. Simply the cheapest and best way to pass a afternoon.
Make fun t shirt’s to wear when we go on outings. Makes it easier to find them in a crowd. Here is my shirt design.
Of course I will have to plan crafts for myself, I have tons of things I need made for around the house. Having a plan always puts my anxiety at ease.
