S-U-M-M-E-R T-I-M-E! It’s what we wait for all year long. We often have high hopes and big dreams for our summer months, yet the reality of unscheduled days can hit hard. If you have kids at home this summer and want some help figuring out how to do the daily schedule well, we’re here to help. Or if you want tips and ideas on what to read, what to eat, and what to wear this season, this episode is for you too!
Krista and Alex tackle all things summer. From designating a day a week for baking, to the best porch swing to purchase, to how to get your kids off their screens, to the best bag for travel, they help you think through these fun and important months that break up the school year.
