It’s Summer!! Ok I’m only half that excited really. I do love the long and lazy days of summer, but I also have learned that without proper plans in place, the long and lazy quickly turns to chaotic and out of control. But, I still refuse to be a summer programmer, so I do all I can to put structures in place to allow for day to day fun without my kids having to run hither and yon or be scheduled up to their (or my) eyeballs.
I’ve written some posts about our marble-jar summer behavior plan as well as chores and schedules. Today, my first #VlogMom video answers the question from Hilary at My Scraps, “Do you plan out your summer or just let it happen?”. See for yourself what I think I do.

I really like the marbles in the jar idea. I think I can do that. I might use kids meals toys in a basket 🙂 I never know what to do with all of those (the kids eat out more than we do 🙂 Great to have you join us in VlogMom!
That’s a great idea! Whatever incentive works, I think.
