I was just looking through our photos from summer vacation last year. We had so much fun!
We’re not likely to travel this year, but my daughter and I are looking forward to lots of time lounging poolside, taking beach trips and whatever else we decide to do. We’ll just have to let the days unfold.
When my daughter was little we used to go blueberry picking at the beginning of the summer. We’d have to get up early to try and beat the summer heat. She loved filling her bucket with blueberries, eating a few along the way.
Then we’d get home, rinse them, divide them up and store them in the freezer. Talking about it is making me long for my blueberry cobbler. I’ll have to share that recipe with you soon.
We also used to meet friends at Chick-fil-a, the local pool or park for play dates. Sometimes it’s hard to keep coming up with activities. Now, I will proffer that our summer calendars don’t need to be full. A little unstructured time is a good thing, or we’d never have the expression ‘lazy summer days.’
But if you’re looking for some structured activities to fill those long summer days, I’m sharing several ideas for summer activities for kids today at Live Creatively Inspired.
I’ll meet you back here on Friday for a fun treat!
See you in class,
