General Summer Planning + Kirchhoff Menu & Activities: Week of June 15, 2015

Summer had begun around here! Wahoo! I'm still using the She Plans Dinner menu. I like it for the most part. Low commitment and I don't have to think much - just pick what sounds good from the list. About 80% have been crowd-pleasers. (Beats Pinterest, which is usually 50/50.) It's a pick and choose kind of menu, so I don't feel like I need to follow a certain plan. I think I have about a month left on the plan. Unsure yet if I'll renew.

Too keep us from watching too much T.V. - or to keep me from relying on it too much would be a more accurate way of saying that - I'm using a themed Monday-Friday schedule. There are lots of versions: I'm using this one simply because it's the first one that popped up when I searched "summer schedule." My super planner first born is excited about it!

After this week, I also want to start a daily schedule if some sort. Something like this or this. A goal for this summer is to teach the girls, especially my oldest who is 6, how to do chores they haven't learned yet (baseboards, anyone?!) and other life skills like packing a lunch. But I need to build that into a schedule, or it'll never get done!

Another thing we're doing in the mornings is focusing on a Fruit of the Spirit each week and trying to focus on that one Fruit weekly. I'll probably come up with a sticker chart or something anytime I see the kids being loving, kind, etc.
