We didn’t DO anything!! This will help!

Going on a trip? I also have created a Travel Journal and Planner!! Want both? Bundle the two together and save!!


Routines Help, Even in Summer

Though it’s summer and we all want to just relax and possibly let the kids do what they want, it’s proven that kids do better with routine. I knew this when I was a school psychologist and my children have proven this to me as well. When I try to let go and just let them have free rein of the day, things go from fun to chaos pretty quickly.

In the same vein, I don’t want to over schedule our summer. I homeschool and I want a break too! I don’t want to have to schedule everything out and be teacher everyday all summer and tell my kids what to do. I want them to be able to explore, have some say in what we do day-to-day, and have plenty of time outside.


Beyond Routines, Bucket Lists!!

Beyond a basic routine, having a bucket list is essential for the summer to help ensure it won’t pass you by without doing all the things you had hoped to do. I have a hard time coming up with ideas beyond going to the beach and grilling so I found having some ideas from others to be helpful, as you can see below.

Our Basic Schedule

We have a general schedule that’s already set in terms of when breakfast and lunch are, but beyond that it’s fair game. For now I’m going to try having a main activity or theme for the morning and then quiet time in the afternoon for a couple hours like normal.

I know the kids really want to be on their iPads so I’m planning on having us get outside, go to a park, play in the yard, play with Kinetic Sand or PlayDoh, etc. in the morning and then be able to be on their iPads for a couple hours in the afternoon. That way we all get to do what we want, have time together, and have time apart.

Here is my plan as of now, I’m sure it’ll change over time:

  • 6:00am Twins get up and eat breakfast with my husband; I get up and shower then eat breakfast
  • 6:50am My oldest gets up and gets ready
  • 7:00am My husband goes to work (he works in the lower level of our home, love the commute!)
  • 8:00am My oldest should be eating breakfast by now, in the school year it’s 7:30 so I’m being more lenient but we’ll see how this goes.
  • 8:30am-10:45am Activity Time: this is when I plan on using the activities planned out on the calendar. Whether we go to the beach, go outside, play with Legos or games inside, have a playdate, or whatever, this is our window of opportunity.
  • 11:00am Make & Eat Lunch
  • 12:30pm Quiet Time/iPad Time/Mom gets a break to work on my blog, etc.
  • 2:30pm Anything we didn’t finish in the morning can be finished, maybe we’ll go outside again, or work on some learning. We’ll see how this goes.
  • 3:35pm My husband is done with work and typically he takes over with the kids while I go workout for 40 mins then make dinner.
  • 5:00pm Dinner Time
  • 6:15pm Start getting kids ready for bed, stories, etc.
  • 7:00pm Twins in bed, then get our oldest to bed by 7:30pm.

I’m actually quite excited to implement something new with this summer calendar of activities and I hope it helps you too!
