Lists and Calendars
Have you started planning your summer vacation yet? Now is a good time to think about what you'd like to do before it's too late to find accommodations or tickets for the places you'd really like to go!
Not to mention that pre-planning helps prevent (some of) the rushing around to get it all done during the couple days before any family trip.
Try using a vacation checklist as you plan and prepare. And most importantly, try not to stress about the "perfect" vacation but rather just make the most of the time you have with your family!
