Recently I've heard or read about people trying to establish a routine or schedule for summer and just plain trying to get their lives organized. It's also something that I've been thinking about now that summer vacation has began. I want to make sure we don't waste away our days. I want to do fun outings with the kids, projects at home, keep them from watching too much tv, and once and for all get them to help out with chores around the house! I've been mulling over some ideas, trying to come up with a good plan. But we've got one more upcoming trip so I don't feel like I can really implement anything until we're back home and life is "normal" again.
Okay, I do have a point to all this rambling. Stacy Julian posted some really cool ideas on her blog about her family's summer fun schedule and I'm totally inspired at this moment -- we'll see how I'm feeling tomorrow, though ;o) -- so I wanted to share the link. Maybe it can help someone else, but most of all I just wanted to paste it here to remind me!
and here's where she shares a pic & more details of the popsicle jobs - http://stacysbigpicture.typepad.com/altogether_too_happy/2007/06/note-to-self.html
