Summer Survival...


I just discovered this book and am so excited... I plan on truly using it as my Survival Guide...It is loaded with great ideas and crafts, etc. I feel especially challenged this Summer since Christian is more on the move and toddler-ish than last not to mention a son and daughter that not only are different genders but 3.5 years apart. Sometimes this makes for scheduling and activity challenges! I plan to take my que from Nanny 911 and do a schedule on poster board that the kids and I can all refer to...this will hopefully help avoid the constant nagging..."play with me" "what are we doing and where are we going today"," can I have another snack?", when is lunch, when can a friend come to play...blah, blah, blah! With that being said I have "scheduled" less camps and activities than last Summer and I really want the focus to be swimming and reading and just good old fashioned fun! So...check back with me mid June and we'll see if I still the feel same or if I have shipped them off to the grandparents for the Summer! So...what are your "survival" tips for Summer?

New to your blog. What cute clothes for the trunk show. Thanks for the tip on this book. I think I'll have to see if my library has this one. Blessings from Kalamazoo!!

I am picking up a copy of this book today. After 10 months of playing games, singing and doing crafts all day long at pre-K, my boys think summers at home with mom are far from exciting.
