Our Weekly Summer Schedule

When school got out, I was really stressed about the idea of being home with the kids all summer and making sure that I was an engaging mom. School takes up so much time with our kids, and I want to capitalize on the time that they're home and really feel like I got the most out of our time together that I possibly could. 

I sat down last week and wrote in my planner one activity that we could do every single day for the entire summer. Do I plan on sticking to the scheduled days exactly? No. But, if we're sitting around the house going crazy, and we don't have anything planned with friends, it will be so nice to open up my planner and say, "Great, we can go play in the sprinklers!", or "Let's get in the car and see The Spiral Jetty!" 

To start off I made my summer bucket list, and then I made this little schedule to make sure we would get a wide variety of activities in each week, and then I started plopping in the activities to their corresponding days. I had the entire calendar filled in under an hour, and now I'm super excited for the summer ahead, knowing that we'll always know what's coming our way!
