I was watching the movie Grown Ups last night with my man and it reminded me that the kids today (wow that makes me sound so old) don’t understand what it means to enjoy life. Especially summer. When I was young, I couldn’t wait for summer. It means I got to be a tomboy, I got to play all day at Ledges in Boone, it meant I got to climb trees, and skin my knees (not intended to rhyme btw) and it meant when I loved i the city I got to have lemonade stands and go rollerskating and fly kites and all the fun outdoor activities.
If you are struggling for ideas, I have found this list for you to print off and mark off as you finish up your summer. For some like here in the mid west, school is just around the corner. For others school is a bit of time away. Regardless the days for the Summer of 2013 are soon ending and I don’t know about you but I believe in making every moment count.
Right click image, save as, then print, or print off straight away if you
There are plenty more activities and ideas out there everywhere on line. Just Google or Bing “Summer Activities”.
Step away from the computer and video games and make your kids do the same. Go play with them, connect with them and make great old time family memories. Take your kids and maybe others out with you and let the kids make friends the old fashioned way…IN PERSON.
Bring back the good ole days have some fun in the sun!
Until next time,
