It's summer. The schedule has slowed down. Bedtimes are moved back. Kids sleep in. Days are spent at the pool. Nights are spent watching movies. There's more just hanging out with the kids. Summer is an especially nice time to linger together eating on the patio as the evening draws near. Those lazy, hazy days of summer. . . this, however, means that meals have to planned, groceries have to be bought, dinner must be cooked, and dishes must be washed. Paradise is lost!

But don't despair. Here is a simple way that our family does meals and meal planning over the summer. I've written and blogged about it before, but as I again get ready to sit down to dinner with my family, I realize what a blessing following this little plan has been. In fact, it's one of the first videos in my MOMents with Smart Martha series. See if something like this can be adapted to work with your family.
