Ah, summer vacation. Sunshine and iced tea. Long, sultry evenings. The kids riding their bikes until the streetlights blink on. Pure bliss.
Then, ten minutes later . . . "Mom, I'm bored."
You bite your tongue to keep from yelling, "You know what I'd give to have three months of nothing to do?!" Instead, you calmly suggest an activity that will be rejected out of hand. Then repeat. Sometimes hourly.
But summer doesn't have to be that way. You and your kids can have a fun, relaxing, and fulfilling summer together with just a little preparation and prayer. Kathi Lipp makes summer as easygoing as it should be with ideas such as
· taking trips to the farmers' market (where shopping gets done at the same time!)
· kid-focused cooking (that actually gets meals on the table)
· assigning summer chores
· planning mom-only activities
· art activities even moms will love
She also gives you short, to-the-point prayers to keep your heart connected to God and your family and includes helpful links to free downloads of a summer calendar, a cookbook for kids, and more.
Ready for a summer the whole family can enjoy? With her signature wit and hard-earned wisdom, Kathi shows you the way.
