It’s the middle of summer. It’s hot. Kids are inside. “I’m bored.” “He’s looking at me.” “Tell her to stop touching me!” “Mom, I don’t want to read. We’re out of school.” You’re sick of it. You’re this close to sending your kids off to summer boarding school if there is such a thing. What do you do? Little money, kids on edge, and you too? Find fun group stuff! Suggestions: crafts, scavenger hunts, read a book! How about some of the classics: Charlotte’s Web, Where the Red Fern Grows. Do you have boys? How about How to Eat Fried Worms? You’re right, these have no spiritual significance, but you can make some by asking questions based on plot twists. Enjoy these moments. They’re going to be off to college before you know it.
