Three neighbors called me yesterday morning as I was getting my kids off to school. "Are you signing your kids up for the summer camp at the park?" Nope. Summer is MY time with the kids (To understand why I'm feeling pretty possessive of time with my kids these days, you can read my recent post: Are you getting what YOU need out of motherhood?).
Anyway, here's a post I wrote for The Power of Moms explaining what we've figured out works best for us in the summer. Hopefully you'll find some ideas here that might be helpful to you as you figure out your own summer plans.
