It is very hard for me to believe that the school year is coming to an end and summer is knocking at our doors. I look forward to summer and cringe at it also. It will be so nice not having to rush to get out the doors in the morning and frolick around in the yard at dusk on a Tuesday evening. I look forward to spending days by the pool, reading lots of books, playing made up games with my children, and finding myself in fun little spur of the moment adventures.
However weeks upon weeks of little structure and routine. Daily playing referee to sibling rivalry, bored kids, and smoldering, humid South Carolina heat that leaves you unable to breath and get outside somedays, is the part that makes me cringe.
So I went on a little search to help me get motivated to plan our summer vacation. And this is some of the stuff I found.
Talk about spur of the moment adventures, this is PERFECT!!
