I, for one, am SO EXCITED that summer is here. (As long as I try not to think about the fact that it means my kids are one year older.). I just love that the summer is OURS. No one bossing around our schedule.
But I know summer can be a little intimidating for moms with houses filled up with kids. Trying to keep them occupied and productive amidst the fun. So I’m linking in some summer organization (or lack thereof!)/goal posts that I came across as I am trying to contemplate the summer stretching out before us here.
