What are your summer plans?

School’s out and after a few boring things (think groceries and doctor’s appointments), we’re ready to have fun! Since I love checklists and want to make sure I’m an intentional mother who’s more present while my children are at home with me, we’ve come up with this list of things we’d like to do during the precious ten weeks they’re home from school. Plus, maybe it’ll distract them from bickering too much. 😉 There will still be plenty of days to relax and laze around but there’s only so much sitting around we can do before we lose our minds. It’s all about balance, right?

We both snagged a fish on the first cast!
