Our summer fun list

Summer break is fast approaching and I am busy planning activities to occupy our time off. What does a family of 5 do in this happy hometown you ask?

We always participate in the Barnes and Noble summer reading program. We also love to visit the local library to attend their summer presentations and activities. The kids love to swim in our lake or go to the city pool for some chlorinated fun. Lastly, I busily plan for my upcoming school year. A teacher’s brain never really shuts off! There you have it…just a peek at some of our summer fun. See the summer fun list below to see what else we love doing to make wonderful memories.
