It's the first week of June and your kids are either home now or about to be home for the whole summer. That is 3 unstructured months of chaos ahead of you ... but it doesn't have to be! You asked; I answered: What does your summer schedule look like? With a few minutes of planning your create a flexible structure to fit any family during the summer break, and all year long. No need to panic nor roll your eyes at me! Having a schedule doesn't mean you're stuck with a minute by minute inflexible itinerary sucking the fun out of every hour. Your summer vacation can still be full of fun and freedom and impromptu activities, without you losing your sanity on the daily. Having a running list of activities to keep everyone entertained keeps my stress down and decision fatigue low. There's no scrambling around in the morning trying to figure out "Mom, what are we going to do today?" Or the wasted mornings where I can't figure out what the answer is and all of the sudden it's lunch time, and I still don't know what we're going to do today and it's half over! Today we're walking through what the schedule set up looks like, as well as how I have implemented that framework for our family with specifics on time and activities. Our family has used this basic schedule for multiple years, and we adapt it as our kids grow from babies to toddlers to preschoolers to elementary school to adults (that's for me, the mom.)
