Summer Survival

I had a friend ask today about this summer schedule we used last year.  I had forgotten all about that schedule and went digging to find it.  I love it when someone reminds me of a good idea I had but had forgotten about.  Summer is almost upon us here in Athens....only 7 more days of school!  I find summer is much more manageable when I have a plan.  I spend less time being that cranky mom who no one listens to and more of the fun mom taking her kids to do fun things ...continue reading
