TGIF: Summer Fun {Link up}


Welcome to my link up --

Thank God It's {Family Fun} Friday -- TGIF!!

I want to encourage you to create memories, build family traditions, and have fun with your family!  Because children grow up faster than you think possible . . . 

Many families look forward to having a Family Fun Night on Fridays.  Is this something your family does?  Tell us about it!  What are your favorite Friday night activities?  Do you plan special activities on weekends?  What do you do for Fun with your family??  How do you create memories?  Do you have any special family traditions?  Please share any of the above by leaving a comment or linking up your blog!

Summer Fun

What comes to mind when you think of summer?  Lazy days at home with a cup of lemonade in one hand and a good book in the other??  Fun days soaking up the sun and splashing in the cool refreshing water at the beach, pool, or lake?  Or maybe you think of neatly organized closets, cabinets and bookshelves after a good summer de-cluttering and organizing spree?

I think summer means all of those things to me -- it is a time to enjoy freedom from normal routines, to stay up a bit later reading or watching a movie, to tackle much-needed home improvement and organization projects, and of course, a time to have some fun in the sun! 

It is also a time to create lasting memories with our children!  Many times as busy {homeschooling} moms we get so caught up in "getting it all done" and trying to mark everything off our to-do lists that we neglect to find time to relax and enjoy our children and just have fun with them!  Our kids love it when we get silly with them and enter into their play.  It really makes them feel loved, ties heartstrings, and builds memories!!  If you need some suggestions to help get you started, check out  Time-Warp Wife's FREE printable Summer Bucket List.  She has done the work for you, coming up with three lists of creative ideas for summer fun!  Hang it on the fridge and start checking off items on your Summer Fun To-Do List!  You'll be glad you did!

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for stopping by and saying, "Hi." I've sort of put my blog on hold for the past year as I have found it takes so much time that I desperately needed to wisely use in other areas of my life. I cut back on blog reading and net-surfing as well. Just something I needed to do in order to manage my time better and accomplish the more important things that were calling out for my attention.

Regarding your topic of making memories with children...I have found that my children love to put on a talent show for each other. With 10 children (as you know) there are plenty of people for the audience. Each person signs up to perform something, ie hula hooping, telling jokes, yo-yo-ing, etc. They all love it and even I get into it with crazy "talents" that surprise them. We make some popcorn and line up the chairs. One of my twins is usually the MC and he calls out each person's name who signed up to perform. We laugh so much. It's really a great way to spend an evening.

I am still looking forward to hearing about how Josh and Kristi met and courted. Did you post about that and I mised it? You were going to email me way back when about it.
