Summer fun doesn’t plan itself!

With our busy family schedule, I was thrilled to find The 2019 Essential Summer Vacation Calendar. It’s the perfect tool to help me visually lay out how we are going to spend the kids’ nine weeks of summer break.

When do we have scheduled summer camps or organized activities?

When do we have time to fit in some family adventuring?

What about time away alone as husband and wife?

Do we have pockets of downtime in between organized activities for boredom and free play?

The Essential Calendar- Summer Vacation Edition- is a perfect tool to help anyone who wants to be organized and make memories this June, July, and August.


The 2019 Essential Calendar Summer Edition runs from the weeks of Memorial Day through Labor Day. Featuring easy-to-read bold type on lightweight 18″x 24″ sheets, this simple calendar runs $15 and allows you to purposely plan your precious summer season.

9 Ways to Deliberately Design Your Summer

I had so much fun sitting down to colorfully decorate our calendar with what our busy family of seven already has scheduled. It’s perfect to post on the wall for all of our family members to see so no one has to keep asking me when they leave for summer camp or when we’re headed to California. It’s all there for them to see. They can also add anything to the family calendar as well!

    I would love to ditch my phone calendar and disconnect from the technology for a bit! I used to use a daytimer years ago and miss being able to use something so simple as a summer vacation calendar. This would be perfect for our summer! Thank you for the opportunity!

    With two kids in travel sports and a short summer – one moving up to middle school, the other moving on to high school, and mom teaching – planning out the summer is so necessary! Don’t want to waste a single day of the few we have left together with these precious ones.

    I am a teacher and planning is my thing! I am also teaching summer school so I need to stay on top of effective planning so I can enjoy some time for vacationing too.

    I did a little version of this myself this summer and it has been a lifesaver to see it all planned out like this. What a great idea. It looks so nice to have it all on one page to see it all easily.
