The first day of summer is Wednesday, June 21, but the end of school comes even sooner, meaning summer break starts very soon!
We have a trip planned in a couple weeks to attend my niece’s wedding and then go on to visit my in-laws and then come back home, driving each leg of the trip, for a combined distance of 2700 miles. In a car with four children. In less than a week’s time.
Yeah, we’re probably nuts. It’s okay to think that with us.
I do know we’ll listen to several audio books (Harry Potter among them), have the kids watch movies on our portable DVD players, and pack lots of snacks, drinks, toys, games, and books to keep everyone entertained, and hopefully happy.
(If you’re taking a trip soon, you can try Audible and get two free audiobooks!)
And before we leave we will be going over our Before You Leave on Vacation Checklist so when we come home the house will be in order, clean, and hopefully intact, allowing us to relax and not feel stressed.
This checklist is just one of several fun summer printables that you can get for free by subscribing to our lists to help you prepare for and enjoy your summer! A few of my blog friends and I have collaborated together to offer them all to you!My friend Jen from Your Everyday Family has a cool Road Trip Journal that I think is perfect for traveling!
Annette Belnap from Tips from a Typical Mom has a Summer Reading Chart to keep the kids occupied and learning this summer! We’ll definitely be using this as my daughter’s continue to build up their reading confidence and word recognition.
Katie from Clarks Condensed has a Summer Bucket list and summer activity checklist great for keeping the kids busy and having fun.
