Summer can be a magical time. Even us working moms can help add a little extra summer magic before work, after work, and on the weekends. Yes, even in though we will likely be a little extra busy, we can still create magical moments for our kids. In today’s episode, I am excited to share some suggestions and tips that are easy to use in the midst of all the chaos. 

What works for you and your family might not work someone else. These tips are designed to be simple and practical. In the spirit of true summer magic, I also wanted to include some ways that Mom and Dad can have fun too! 

“Create memories that your children will look back on and cherish.”

Today, we are going to start planning for the best summer possible. These steps will work even if kids are already out of school! I talk all the time about how a little planning ahead can save time and energy down the road, so now is the perfect season to start getting ahead on all the fun (and stress!) of summer. 

“Be intentional to bring about the summer you want.”

Summer is a season full of expectations. I want to show you today how to manage the stress that happens between those expectations we make and the reality in which we are living. Between summer camps, activities, registration dates, and fees to pay, it will certainly benefit you to plan ahead. It’s time to grab your calendar and a pencil and get started! Summer will be here before you know it.

Verse of the Week 

Isaiah 55:12 “You will go out in joy
    and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
    will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
    will clap their hands.”
