What to do with Kids in Summer

What will I do with my kids in summer??? THat’s the questions most moms are asking themselves at the end of school year.

When summer rolls in, what do you think about? Do you absolutely dread it or do you welcome it with open arms like your long-lost friend? I have to admit that I can honestly identify with either of these reactions. When the school year comes to an end, I often feel intimidated by the unknown of summer. How will we spend our days? Will I manage all-day-long bickering with grace? When will I get all my housework done??

I have realized though that it’s not the thought of my children spending summer at home that flusters me. Simply put, it’s just the thought of a change. I struggle with the change of routine, be it my route to the grocery store or the way I put my make up on. Knowing and ultimately accepting this about myself has actually helped me in many areas of my life in the recent years. Even though predictability is my jam, I had to learn to adapt! Because what is life but an unpredictable chain of events, right?
