7 Strategies for Navigating Summer Vacation with a Toddler

summer vacation.jpgNavigating Summer Vacation with a 3 kids in 3 different life stages is no laughing matter. In our three summers now with big kids and a baby (now toddler) we’ve learned a few strategies on how to navigate a summer of fun and retain a bit of our sanity.
