How is summer vacation going at your place?  Our kids definitely need some down time after a long school year, but the lack of routine that summer brings may have them feeling bored and may have you a little frazzled keeping them occupied.

Want some help?  Maybe you should try The Morning High Five.

I was reading about The Morning High Five today, and it seems like a great way to build some routine into your kids’ summer, and help them get moving on some of those lazy mornings.  Here’s how it works:

Pick five things your child needs to get done by a specific time each day.  For example, maybe you would decide they need to make their bed, get dressed and put their clothes away, brush their teeth, complete a chore and eat breakfast by 9:00 a.m.

The goal of the Morning High Five is that by the time the kids are done with these tasks, they are ready for whatever else the day may hold.
