What prompted this post? This Spring when school was getting out I was asked by several people what I had planned for the kids this summer. What activities had I signed them up for?
My response was, “NOTHING”. We had a great summer despite the lack of “planning”. In some aspects of life I am a planner but in many I am not. I believe that kids will make their own paths if you foster their dreams and interests rather then force upon them.

Sometimes we’re so concerned about giving our children what we never had growing up, we neglect to give them what we did have growing up. ~James Dobson
