If your family is like ours, you’re celebrating the end of the school year and the imminent arrival of the summer season. Summer means fun. The two words might as well be synonyms.
Now, with school out, we’ve got lots of activities planned. Grandkids are coming to visit — one is spending the night tonight — and we’ll be heading off for a dance recital tomorrow evening.
Also coming up on the agenda for the summer will be more picnics and parties — we always invite friends and family over for a Fourth of July feast — along with days at the lake, mornings at the park, and an occasional night out on the town.
We also have a wedding coming up! Although the wedding itself isn’t until November, the bride-to-be is already quite busy with dress-shopping, bridal registries, and all the rest of the excitment that comes with saying “Yeah, we’re going to do this!”
I love having fun with my family, and with eight grandchildren and one great-grand, summer means lots of fun. I’ve been browsing around a bit online, checking out craft ideas and projects, and I’ve found some great ones. Everyone, from chubby-cheeked toddlers to us “old folks” in our rockers, can join in the fun.
Check out these fantastic ideas for summer fun!
