Summer's coming...a bit of thought now can save you weeks of chaos. 
Create summer rhythms that help you balance fun AND real life responsibilities, so you can make make memories with your kids.
Summer feels so...romantic. Doesn't it? 
We think of the warm weather, bright sunshine, and opportunities for lifetime memories. 
We imagine everyone:
  • Taking nice strolls eating ice cream.
  • Swimming, splashing, and laughing together.
  • Playing happily outside (or reading books!).
  • Sleeping late... zzzzzz.
  • Exploring and enjoying one another's company in new places.
You start off strong, and then, before you know it, you're an exhausted shell of yourself because...
Chores and household responsibilities aren't getting done, even though there seems to be more time. 
And the things you want to avoid (like too much screen time) ARE monopolizing your days.
You feel like a camp counselor, constantly trying to occupy the kids to fend off Boredom Fights. 
You're chasing tornado children around the house trying to get them to calm down -- or at least pick up some toys. 
I think we can agree...
...that we do NOT want these shenanigans happening all daggum day this summer:
  • Snacking all day.
  • Constant chaos from lack of routine.
  • ​Whining and bickering non-stop because everyone's bored.
  • ​Daily screen-time marathons because you're losing it.
  • ​Screaming and yelling (you or the kids).
  • Grinding to entertain the kids all day as they recite, "mom, Mom, MOM!" 
  • Couch potato kids not doing any chores.
  • ​Too much time invested in meal prep/planning.
  • Overscheduled busyness.
  • ​Constant sibling fighting that makes you want to hide in a closet.
Thankfully, you can avoid all that drama. 
Create daily routines that balance fun and memory making with the responsibilities of daily life.
Our Summer Rhythms workshop will show you how to:
  • BALANCE fun with productive days where everyone's needs are met.
  • ​Create a good mix of routines, chores and simple fun activities that don't require constant parent involvement.
  • ​Encourage independence, responsibility and cooperative sibling play.

With the help of Summer Rhythms, we want you to have one of the best summers of your family's history. 
I'm a mom of two, military spouse, founder of The Military Wife and Mom and Language of Listening® Master Parent Coach. 

If there's one thing that's true it's this...last summer was the best summer of our lives. 

I FINALLY figured out how to create routines that balanced fun and memory making with the responsibilities of daily life. I spent too many of past summers counting down the days for it to end, piling on screen-time and hiding in the bathroom with chocolate. 

This summer, we are beyond excited for a Summer Rhythms Repeat. 

We are going for a balanced routine to meet everyone's needs AND build in anchor points throughout the week and weekend that make room for fun and connection. 

Rachel Norman, A Mother Far From Home, and I are going to bring our best strategies as parent coaches, routine connoisseurs, and quasi-minimalist mothers to help you make memories in the simple things, get household responsibilities done (by everyone!), and create days that flow well
"I’ve found your approach to parenting and home organization really relatable, practical and achievable.

Rejuvenating down time so everyone is refreshed, not sitting on a screen all day.

In our Summer Rhythms workshops, we'll share with you step-by-step how to plan well.

Create semi-scheduled days so you're free to enjoy summer fun without all the chaos that comes from no plan.
Set anchor points within your weeks and weekends to be sure a balanced level of structure and adventure exists.
Make realistic chore systems without nagging and punishment. Even though it's summer...the house don't run itself. 
Establish "wake up times" that anyone toddler aged and up can keep so mama ain't getting up at 5 am for no reason. 
Keep a Not To Do List so you can be intentional with your summer and not waste it on things that don't matter.
Manage boredom which - of course - leads to fighting and outrageous messes. 
Plan your days so everyone has a peaceful summer and isn't fighting like cats and dogs OR in front of a screen for 10 hours a day.

Take heart, mama... can have loosely structured days that don't feel too scheduled, but that flow smoothly so everyone's needs (including your own) are met.

Any age because it's for YOU creating simple summer rhythms that make life enjoyable for your whole family this summer. 
And if I'm a working mom?
Working moms deserve an amazing summer too and, if you're gone for much of the day or trying to work from home, it's even more important to plan simple rhythms to make sure you're getting enough memory making in!
How much time is required?
In as little as a few hours (maybe less if you speed us up, ha!)  you can learn the principles and put them all down on paper. 
I already did Family Routines Reboot... is this the same thing? 
Nope! This is specifically geared towards summer days where we want some structure to keep the peace, but room for memory making and merriment.
