What Do You Do In the Summertime?

It is that time of year, where summer plans need to be made. This hit me last week when the kids were all home for Spring Break, the house was in complete chaos, and I realized this is what it would be all summer. Let's just say I'm scared. So I need ideas - what do you do with your kids in the summer?


  1. Aaaah, spring break scared me too. I kept thinking, "you guys can't fight all summer, right?" Last year I kind of did Aubrey's idea of having a day scheduled for different things, like "Masterpiece Monday," "Tidy up Tuesday," "Where are we going Wednesday" and that kind of thing. It worked pretty good with a cleaning schedule they had to follow everyday in order to do the fun "activity" but having one day to just clean didn't make them love Tuesdays, so that day was always tough. I have a tough time leaving the house (in the car) to go somewhere adventurous, so I really TRIED to do that on Wednesdays without spending a fortune, and I could tell the kids really enjoyed the little field trips, but with your babies that would be tough sometimes! At least your girls are great helpers though...I bet they could come up with some fun ideas on their own! ;) Let me know if you hear any other great ideas because I'm not looking forward to school ending, and I wish I was one of those moms who does!

  2. I had forgotten Aubrey's routine. I think we are going to have to do that this summer. Thanks for the tip!
