I had to share this fun project.  I found a new to me blog that has really inspired me to do some crafting with our school this year. Katherine has been doing themes of the week this summer with her children. She has a ton of cute, fun ideas!

If you know your values, then you have a base for your priorities. For example: a mother has her role, and has her values as a mother, so her priorities are set accordingly.

Is the way you're managing your time right now reflect your true values and priorities?

How is Your Time Management?

Rather than thinking about quantity — of ideas, of experiences, of work produced — we need to think about quality. Spending more time doing less, so we can do better and appreciate more. A single experience, really and truly had and understood, is more valuable than weeks and weeks of rushed, unconnected, random experiences.--
