How to Keep Your Mom Sanity When School’s Out for Summer

School’s out for summer! Are you ready? All across the country schools are beginning to let out for summer vacation. While this brings joy to some, it also sparks fear and frustration in others. What am I going to do with my kids all day? How am I going to deal with their bickering and complaining? When will I have time to get MY stuff done?

However, by summer’s end even *I* was ready to get back to school, so I understand where these weary parents are coming from.
