getting inspired and motivated for long lazy summer days..

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!!



GREAT SUMMER CHECKLIST



A must for surviving the long days of summer..


Very cute idea for celebrating the 4th...



Movie night... YES PLEASE



Then we can head off to slumber... with the crickets and tree frogs.

No Doubt!! I'm trying to figure out how I could rent a camper (preferable one of those air streams, although I believe that's wishful thinking.) and create one of these scenes. Just so whimsical. :)

That would be so fun!
