Is this summer going to be like the last?
It’s easy to just grab someone else’s idea of what makes a good summer with our kids.
Borrow a little bit of curriculum here and a dash of downtime there, a whole bucketful of outdoor time here and a sprinkling of screens there.
Unfortunately though we need a better recipe for our family since we’re all a little picky about what’s a simple summer. The good news is instead of following someone else’s blueprint you can easily make your own with your family in mind.
Today I’m sharing 8 steps to creating a simple summer rhythm for your family. I hope you enjoy listening to the show below and sharing with your friends.
In the links below you’ll find some discussion questions to take away and talk with your spouse, partner, friends and family. It’s not until you talk about play that you find allies in your area and fellowship in numbers.
In the comments, share ONE thing you’re not doing this time as you create your simple summer rhythm
