This year I think most of the summer will be spent playing outside for my boy. He's nine and we finally live in a place and he is at an age where I let him go out on his own and check in with me every hour. There are a ton of boys around and someone is always out. We'll let them have water play and I'll keep ice cream and popsicles on hand. I think it will be a summer to remember for him.
For my daughter, 12, she's looking forward to crafts and sewing and hanging with friends. There are a couple girls here in the neighborhood that come over and they sing and make up dances, LOL. She's going to be babysitting regularly and starting two dance camps in July. So, she'll be busy too.
I'm going to scrap, read and chill, oh, and NOT drive to dance and soccer as often as during the school year, LOL
