I am a week late on posting about the Summer Survival Challenge I am following over at Hello Mornings.  Just like Jenni at that blog, I am having trouble planning and staying motivated for this summer planning.  This 2013 Summer Schedule is such a great resource of ideas, etc.  However, I think what I will be doing is just using it as a source of ideas for when I get stuck with what to do on 'empty' summer days.  I'm still going to complete the homework that Hello Mornings is prepping for us.  After that, who knows?  I'll definitely keep updating, though... :)

Here was Week 3's homework (direct from Hello Mornings):
1) Be Summer Organized Training Session
Supply a backpack for each of your kids and use the worksheet to teach them how to think through what they need for a trip and have them pack for themselves.
2) Brainstorm Mom Time Activities
In order to keep things running smoothly, you’ve got to recharge your personal battery.
3) Team up with Other Moms
Pick a few friends with kids and send out an email about doing a few kid swaps, group outings, play dates or other activities and get some dates on the calendar! Outings are always easier and more fun when you take along a few (adult) friends.  {That's for darn sure!!}
4) Local Research
Start searching in your area for free or low-cost activities to do with your kids.  Start a list of all the local things that look fun to try and start filling in your calendar.
5) June Calendar
Armed with all your great worksheets along with four copies of the Summer Weekly Planner, map out your June calendar.

I am not sure how I will get with this, but I hope to get most of this organizing done before our family starts its official summer on June 10th!!

Thanks for stopping by...
