DIY on a Dime: Summer Fun

beach boys

Last night we took the kids to Pizza Port and then walked along the beach. It was a blazing hot day here, so it was really nice to cool off at the beach. Though they were fully dressed, FishBoys 8 and 10 had an absolute blast bodysurfing.

It prompted me to ask WHY?!?! don’t  we do this more often?

DIY on a Dime: Summer Fun

My summer’s resolution is to make more time for fun and relaxation. So, I’m making plans and schemes for doing things with my kids during our summer vacation. My neighbor and I are working out a schedule for outings with all the kids.

Stay tuned! In the next few weeks I’ll be sharing all kinds of free printables, checklists, how-tos, and tutorials for inexpensive summer fun with your peeps.


I’ll be updating this post with all the resource links, so be sure to bookmark or pin and come back often.

PS. Don’t forget to buy your copies of Summer Survival Guide and Fifty Book to Enjoy with Kids. They will serve you well this summer.

  1. Need this!! I need to relax….really. I freak out too much over those little things (that don’t make a difference anyhow), and somehow have trouble just enjoying the moments. Need to turn my Auggghs! into Ahhhhhhs!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
