    My family always made a list of things we wanted to do over the summer, Ride a city bus was on the list for years (it took us a decade to finally pull off)  and spend all day in your PJ’s was another that always made it. My mom calls it the “sand pail list” like a bucket list but just for the summer :)

    • I love it!  We don’t have many city buses here in Maine, but I am adopting the one about wearing PJs all day long.  Maybe that one should happen once a week :-)

    Thanks for the giveaway!
    1) This summer, I plan to still keep my 1-room-a-day cleaning schedule, and have the kids help me with that room BEFORE they go out & play! That way we should still keep some order in the house.
    2) I’m subscribed to ListPlanIt through Google Reader RSS (my e-mail is [email protected])

    We enroll in the summer reading program at our library.  It encourages reading for my otherwise not caring readers and they love the prizes they receive.  It’s free and they earn coupons for free ice cream or pizza and such.

    Thanks for the chance to win!  My best tip for summer – frozen grapes.  They are just the right thing in many hot and humid situations.

  9. Dehavenfam says:

    I don’t know if this is a tip or not…but I say just relax.  If you are lucky enough to be able to have time in the summer to be with family/friends then enjoy it.  Responsibilities will continue, but let the little things go a little looser (sp) for a while. Enjoy the weather, flowers, gardens, beaches, friends and family.  Soon enough we’ll be back to school, there will may be cold weather, plenty of things to make us busy all over again!!

  11. Shannon Roughgarden says:

    One thing I do to have a fun summer is get the family pool pass! Cooling down and spending time with the family :)

  12. Brandy Poirier says:

    I think this book would really help this summer.  I love the cover, very bright.

  13. LAURA says:

    During summer, we make new morning and evening routines (for me and the kids)  to prevent the house getting out of control while the kids are out of school.

  14. Connie Abbott says:

    I like to plan activity times and “down times” in advance.

  20. Close the computer!!  I spend too much time looking for great ideas and not enough time actually doing them!!!  Pick 2-3 activities and put them on the fridge to set a loose agenda.  

    Lindsey @ 

    • So true.  I struggle with this as a work-at-home mom.  I try to have clear times for work and play.  And when it is play time, be there for play.  

  21. Kimgay says:

    Just posted to my wall and your facebook page!!!  I really hope I win!

  22. Posted on Facebook! 

  23. Already am an email subscriber

  24. One thing we are doing to have an efficient summer is have a schedule kind of like the school day – time for library, art, science, social studies, gym, quiet time, etc.

  25. Heather Corson says:

    Hrmm….one tip?  Well, my best advice would be to plan ahead and don’t over book activities.

  30. MarieW says:

    I am a subscriber to your list.

  31. Roushmasue says:

    I subscribe by email.  My tip is to remember to have fun and remember that even with the best planning, sometimes things don’t go as we had planned.

  32. suz says:

    for summer time i find creating a calendar of events and having a general daily schedule makes the time go by slower, more productive, more fun! this year i’m due to have my second child on june 11th so the schedule is more for everyone around me and to make sure my first duaghter has fun activities!

    *following on facebook and rss feed! 

  33. Dehavenfam says:

    Bummer!  No Twitter or blog.  Oh well, I’ll go with what I got!!

  34. Dehavenfam says:

    I’ve been subscribing to your RSS for a little while through Google. I love the convenience.

  35. Dehavenfam says:

    Just pinned on Pinterest, but I’m not sure how to link to it.  :(

    • Good point.  You can find the link to the pin when you click on it.  The URL of that specific pin is the link.  However, you can also just point us to your Pinterest profile so we can follow you, too.

  36. Dehavenfam says:

    Just posted on your facebook page!  I really, really hope I win:)

  37. My tip for a fun and efficient summer, is to try not to plan every little minute.  When you over plan it’s a lot harder to get back on schedule if you get off.  Having little blocks here and there that aren’t planned are perfect for playing catch up or just seeing where the day takes you.

  38. kim says:

    we will keep moving ahead with our routines and schedules, just as women would long ago

  39. Shaunna says:

    I follow by email!

    Schedule!  Schedule!

  41. Corrie says:

    I have four children – ages 15, 8, 6, and 4.  To keep our schedule smooth, I have already made a list of all the places my kids love to visit (pool, aquarium, park, etc.)  Each day of the week is dedicated to one of those places, and we visit it weekly.  When my kids wake up, they know Tuesday is Aquarium Day.  Most of the time, they’re already dressed and ready to go on their own.  :)

    • Corrie says:

      And   I’m hoping to win a Summer Central Binder from and plan to make this my best summer yet!

    • Corrie, I love it!  What part of the world do you live?  I wish we had an aquarium within easy distance of us.  A little incentive to start the day goes a long way to a smooth summer. Thanks for sharing!

  43. Angie says:

    With three children (ages 10, 6, 5) we must create some type of routine for summer.  But beyond our daily routine we do something “fun” every afternoon – Each day of vacation my kids take turns drawing a slip of paper out of a bucket (so, we might do finger painting, have a picnic, go to the beach, etc.).  The possibilities are unlimited!

  44. Jennirv4967 says:

    I’m trying the routine route to keep them going in a more organized manner.

    • You won’t be sorry.  If you are looking for ideas for a great summer routine, my bet is to visit this thread a little later.  I’m sure there will be tons of great ideas here!


So you can get your list on.
