But alas, the season is upon us and it is up to us to make the best of it. Will it be long? Yes. Will it be challenging? Most definitely. Will we be victorious? I believe we will.
I am excited for how I am planning to get through my winter, with the chart I revealed to you a few days ago. For the big debut of this year's challenge, I have carefully thought out and re-arranged my colored activity tabs to best suit my coming 2 weeks.
Now, we picked Friday to do our 'reports' but I made my calendar starting on a Sunday so it might make things a bit confusing. But I am officially starting to follow my planned activities starting this coming Sunday. You can do yours however it works best for you. Also -- some of you may want to only specify activies for Monday-Friday, leaving the weekends to just let things happen.
Just a tip when you are making your own menus...consider what your week already contains, and work around that. For instance, I work every Monday -- so by the time I get home and feed the girls (which goes a lot faster, due to the fact that my wonderful and amazing Mom sends supper home with me when I pick up Malia)...it isn't much longer until it's time to get the girls ready for bed. So I made sure that on those days I picked a simpler activity -- like having a dance party, and reading books together.
And I made sure to keep the Family Movie Nights for the weekends when Les is more likely to be home, and where the girls can stay up a bit later than normal.

Sign up with Mr. Linky, leaving the link to your Activity Menu post, and make sure you spread the word on your blog and come back again in 2 weeks to do it all again!
Winter...Consider yourself Challenged!
