Christmas Break is coming. Don't wait. Don't fret. Start planning things to do now. I like to make a plan for our time off. Whether it's weekends, winter break or summer vacations. Rarely do we follow my scheduled activities. But I have a plan of fun and maybe not so fun things to do. Of course I love having the kids relax at home and mill-around in their pajamas. But, after a day or two of this they are ready and I am ready to do something. Around here we have a lot of great parks, art museums and festivals. I am ready for Winter Break, even if we don't follow my schedule at all.
