2014 NWI Free Summer Fun Calendar (For Working Moms)

It took a while for me to finish my summer fun calendar this year. It’s like the season just crept up on me. I mean really, it was winter and snowing and Jack Frost and what not and then all of a sudden it was 80 degrees! Just like that!

While there are lots of happenings around town this summer, I had to rethink everything I could list. For one, I started this calendar years ago as a way to keep me on track with fun and free stuff to do with the kids. But for two, and perhaps most importantly for this calendar, I am a working mom. So while I’d love to include everything going on during the daytime while I’m at work and the kids are in camp or at grandma’s, it’s just not my reality – what’s more, it’s a lot of work since there’s way more daytime stuff than after work stuff. It’s my firm belief working moms in Northwest Indiana are few and far in between HA!

So without further adieu, I’m sharing with you everything I’ve compiled that’s free. If you have something to add, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll update the list.

Carpe diem, y’all! 😉
