Summer In Review
As the back-to-school chaos begins to die down a bit I wanted to take a moment to encourage everyone to sit down and think about this past summer. Grab some paper and a pen, open up your note-taking app, or print my super-simple Summer Review PDF. What worked? What didn’t? It can be anything from products you wish you › Read more
A New Freebie!
Here is a printable I recently created for my kids to keep track of their summer camp experiences. I know that as soon as they return to school they’ll be asked “so, what did you do all summer?” and I figured this would help jog their memories. I’m also hoping that it’ll help me when › Read more

I’m totally slacking off lately, but with good reason. We’re heading out for a full week of vacation next week! Nothing fancy, just a place in the woods where my main goals include book-reading and wine-drinking. So I’m frantically trying to wrap up projects at work and get myself packed this week. (We let the › Read more

We’re officially in the groove of summer camp, but one thing I just can’t seem to get a handle on is packing lunches.

So was anyone else sneaking this year’s pile of school papers out into the recycling bin this weekend? I save a few things, especially samples of their writing, but the bulk of it must go and I find the task oddly overwhelming. Next up, cleaning out backpacks in preparation for our first summer camp of › Read more
5 Reasons Why I Love Summer Camp
Ok, I’ll admit it… once summer hits I start to fantasize about leaving my job just to have the whole summer “off” (I use that word loosely because as parents, we’re never totally off-duty!). But in reality, there’s a lot to love about summer camp. 1) Keeping the schedule. I am NOT a schedule person unless I › Read more

Happy Father’s Day! To celebrate, we went camping, fishing and hiking this weekend, so I am REALLY thankful for the great weather and some time to relax.

Well, Saturday has been a bit of a wash-out for those of us here in Ballston Spa. Thankfully, we weren’t trying to have a yard sale like so many of our neighbors.
