Summer Vacation 2012

Today begins our first week of summer vacation.  I have myriad hopes and plans for the next couple of months.  I have books I want to read, projects I want to complete, and major organization I want to do in the house.  I'd also like to make fun memories with the kids: going on outings, enjoying days at home, swimming at the pool, reading good books.  I'm fairly certain my plans far extend the time frame and my human limitations (like, I need to sleep!)  Knowing myself, I tend to get very flustered and/or frustrated when plans don't go as, well, planned.  So this morning as I talked with the Lord, I was asking Him to give me some verses to keep me grounded as we embark on the summer.  Here are a few that came to mind:

In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines His steps.Proverbs 16:9 
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.Proverbs 3:5-6 
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.I Corinthians 10:31

How about you?  Do you have a bunch of hopes and plans for the summer?  What are they?  How do you approach them with the Lord?  (Rather than leaning toward control freak tendencies or worry, like I am prone to.)  I would love to hear about it and learn from you!
