Being an intentional mom doesn’t mean you have to plan out every moment of your day, but kids love the excitement of planning the occasional fun outing. It may work better on occasion to surprise the children with something fun to save your sanity (i.e. “Mom, is it time to go YET?!” x 50 trillion) but sometimes half of the fun is watching the excitement build as the time for the activity grows closer.

So….today, we’re planning to go to the beach. This will be the first time for Madeline and Susannah was under two the only time she’s gone so she doesn’t remember much, but that doesn’t stop them from being excited. Any chance to get dirty and play in the water sounds like heaven to my girls so we’re pretty much guaranteed to have a wonderful experience.

In the words of every little kid….”I can’t wait!”
