I love the summer, and miraculously enough I am loving this summer here. I am trying to finish up a few projects today but until then check out the cute decor here at traditions.

I also love these ideas on the Country Living website. I love Country Living. In fact that reminds me my subscription finally ran out! I need to renew.

I just happened upon this website it looks fun for you and has some fun for the kids!

On a different note. I took Corm to Toy Story 3 the other day and ended up crying throughout the whole thing. I loved it, but the whole leaving for college thing hit a little too close to home.

*Tips for enjoying your summer at home with the kids*

Try to keep a schedule even if it is a schedule of lounging and playing. I have found my kids do better when they have some sort of schedule to follow.

Even though it is summer and you want to enjoy every moment (because movies like Toy Story 3 come out and rip your heart in two and make you realize how fast time really does fly)if you need a break take the time to hire a sitter and give yourself a break. Lunch out, a pedi or try my method of going to the movies alone. But allow yourself time outs now and then.

I will add more tips when I happen upon them. I have taught a class on summer activities with your children. Leave me a comment if you want a copy of my notes and ideas. Not to toot my own horn but it is a pretty good class.

Love to you~ Mamie
