  2. Guest Post: Gobs of Jobs

    Rebecca is a mom to two young kiddos and, in her spare time (ha!), likes to pretend she’s a back-up dancer, craft cocktails and run long distances. A relatively recent SAHM, she blogs family-friendly activities, DIYs and celebration fun at Not-So-SAHM



    I love, love the relaxed nature of summer. Sure, we have some scheduled activities, but we also spend lots of time puttering about the house, splashing at the pool, and running free outdoors. Around this time of August however, that running free starts to feel like running wild. And we all start to crave a little organization. We’re not quite ready for school to start up again, but I am more than ready for the kids to start picking up their wet bathing suits off the floor and realizing that soon we’ll have a schedule again. And I was so happy to find The Land of Nod’s “Gobs of Jobs” to help my summer-loving kids make that transition!
