I was talking to a friend at church today, and she had a brilliant idea that I'm going to use. She took the summer activity guide from the paper, and wrote ALL the dates of things she might be interested in on the calendar. That way, if she just HAS to get out of the house with the kids, she knows exactly what is going on that day. And since most of the activities in the paper are free or inexpensive, she'll have a whole summer of inexpensive fun listed right on her calendar! I'm definitely going to use her idea. Experience tells me that there will be at least a few days during the summer where the kids are fighting and we just need a change of scenery.
