It’s the last weekend before school, your back packs are packed, complete with pencils and paper. Your kids’ new school outfits are laid out and ready for the first day. You have lunch bags set on the counter, ready to fill. So what is left to prepare or organize for the new school year? Being organized means you have that last minute fun before the new school year. Have a last minute fling with a day trip to Galveston, family fun night of games, or just an inexpensive jaunt to a local park.
Are you not ready and not so organized? Put in a couple of hours of organizing and jump into the fun! Your kids will remember this last minute fun more than you will stress over being unorganized. And next year it will be a reminder of why get organized – so you can have more fun!
On your outing, talk about what is going to make this school year the best yet! What will each of you do to be great team members for your family? What will be your goal and what does it take to get there? What routines will help everyone achieve their goals for the new year? The best part of family fun is the communication that happens, the sharing laughter and the time spent together.
Not even getting ready for school? Have your last minute fling next weekend! Kids and families will be in their new routines and it will be less crowded than Labor Day Weekend.
We all want to stretch summer to the end!
