During summer vacation with my kids, I've been trying to make fun memories. It's great for them to be home without school to wear them down. To let their minds recuperate from the monotony of prepping for tests every week. But without things to do, they might be wishing to be back in school just to have others to play and interact with. As well as have structured activities.

needed to spend time outdoors. After all, inside they either play with
their Legos or want something that involves the television. Movies are

We do reading sessions. Bible stories and their
readers. When they want to learn about something, I offer to look it up

home. It doesn't cost money we don't have. It is good for all ages. And
it covers every subject out there.
We do make park rounds still.
We love the care packages that come

And one of their favorite things to do during summer vacation?? Sleepovers in the living room!
So keep on getting creative and having fun. Before you know it, school will be back in session and the grind will be in full force!
