Today we’re taking our lists even further by organizing ourselves and creating a loose schedule. It’s important that it’s a loose schedule because you don’t want to be overwhelmed from the beginning! This shouldn’t take very long to do!
You will need your calendar, a pencil or erasable pens (I love Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Ink Pens and use them all the time for my calendar! It makes it easy to color code my kids and family.)
If you don’t want to use your calendar, here are some free printable monthly calendars that you can use to do your scheduling for today’s challenge!
Now grab your bucket list and figure out when you can add these to your summer calendar. I just received all of our softball and t-ball schedules today so I’ve added mine in with the times. I also will add in Maddie’s sports camps, any recitals, and other events that we know exactly when they will be.
After that I’ll start penciling in the extra bucket list items. Use pencil, sometimes dates change!
Here is an example using some of our bucket list activities:
- The girls play ball on Mondays & Wednesdays through the end of June.
- The boys play ball on Tuesdays & Thursdays through the end of June.
- June and July are the summer reading program months.
- Marching Band is August 3-7.
- Fair is July 18-23.
- Swimming lessons are usually around the 1st or 2nd week of June.
- Horsemanship Camp is usually the 1st week of July.
After you have gone through your bucket list you will be able to see your entire summer at a glance. You will know exactly when you are busy and when you have more free time. Our family is always on the run until fair is over. After that is our “relaxing” part of summer and when we usually take a needed vacation!
Hopefully your summer is more relaxed than that crazy schedule but that’s what happens when your kids are spaced apart and they all have a lot of activities.
