100 Days of Summertime 2014!

Introduction
As a kid, I loved summer. I counted down the days until school ended for the year. Summer meant spending the majority of my time in the place I loved most. . .home. It also meant playtime, friends, adventure, and lots of water. Now that I’m a mom, I see that summer means much the same to my three children. And while I still love the lazy days of summer, it is important to me, while my children are still young, that I take advantage of the precious few summers I have with them.

Summer is valuable family time, but it is also an excellent time for training. I want to teach my children life skills, responsibility, and self-fulfillment. I don’t want to see their education come to a complete halt over the summer. My goal is to encourage my children to continue to learn through play, books, and experiences. However, there’s a lot of competition for attention when children are at home: video games, computers, cell phones, television and movies. It sometimes feels like I am fighting a battle between screen activity, boredom, and “mandatory fun”.

Last year, 100 Days of Summertime was born with the 2012 version. This year, it is back with adjusted days and dates for 2014, plus some new ideas. There are three members of the 100 Days series of eBooks. They are written to take you through the busiest times of the year. Be sure to check out our other members of the 100 Days family of blogs and eBooks: 100 Days of a New Year and 100 Days to Christmas.

100 Days of Summertime Begins!
find inspiration for the summer of 2014!

Welcome to “100 Days of Summertime” where you’ll

This eBook is designed as a journey from the unofficial beginning to the unofficial ending of summer, which occurs around Memorial Day and Labor Day respectively. It includes tips, activities, and reminders for the end of school and graduation, summer holidays, summer foods, summer travel, summer frolic, and even back to school.

Whether or not you have children, we hope you’ll find guidance and inspiration in 100 Days of Summertime. Are you ready to get started?

Our first Summertime Strategy goal is to create a summer planner. If you prefer a three-ring binder, then you will need a three-hole puncher, 5 to 8 tabbed dividers (preferably with pockets), and possibly a zipper pocket to hold pens and odds-and-ends. If you prefer a more digital approach, try a folder on your computer, a Pinterest board, Evernote, etc. A summer planner is a great place to keep all of your activities, recipes, schedules, ideas, and lists. It will become your “summer central” over the next 100 days.
