Summer break has been here for about a month or so now, the kids and I are no where near ready to kill each other. I have been enjoying the Summer break quite a bit, sure the lack in routine can occasionally be a bit of a challenge for my son Aj, but overall things are going awesome! As a Mom who has been a penny pincher for as long as she can remember, I wanted to share some tips on how our family has a blast without spending any money, or maybe just a little tiny bit of money some days … I know you can do this too!
I am a huge advocate for being happy within, I truly believe if you are not happy within your own self that no one around you will be happy either. That is where Summer Break comes into play, I see every day how happy I truly am because of how happy my children are in response to my deep inner happiness. We love spending quality time together, and they trust me to work a couple hours every day from home because once my work is done, the day is OURS.
Some Things that the Kids and I enjoy Doing During Summer Break Are:
- Sitting on the deck chatting about whatever or telling funny stories to each other.
- Taking a trip to Walmart or some other local store and having a look around, it’s always fun to check out new toys.
- Take a scenic ride somewhere; one day we hopped in the vehicle and drove 2 hours to the ocean.
- Make blanket forts, play with musical instruments, dress up, pick berries, or play with the ever huge collection of toys in house.
The best part of our summer break days is that we just laugh and laugh and laugh. We are a lively bunch together, and more often than not, you can hear music playing in our home while we do chores together as a means to ensure we are doing our part to keep our household running smoothly. We laugh together, we do chores together, we are family.
What are you doing this Summer break with your family that simply makes you SMILE?
