OK~ I'm wondering how many Moms in the world are doing a happy dance now that the school year is wrapping up? I'm guessing there are more happy dances when August rolls around. Summertime brings family fun, but it also brings stressful times for many parents. The thought of ,"What is my child going to do all summer?" Enroll them in a reputable day care program- sure, that works for some. If they are older- how about checking into some volunteer opportunities within your community.Summer camps- scouting, church, and a few schools offer these types of opportunities. But remember, kids won't usually seek these out- It's up to parents to find these things!
I know that the fishing lines need to be untangled at this house, a treehouse needs some serious repairs, a golf ball retriever needs to be purchased, kittens need some attention and a lot of lawn needs to be mowed. Our 15 year old should, the key word here, should be busy!
A good old fashioned Iowa Summer~ here we come! I'm sure lots of rocks will be tossed into streams, hay will be bailed, and a run-in with a raccoon will surely occur~ always does........After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
