This month’s topic is keeping your kids entertained all summer.
I have zero children. So I might not be the best at talking about this one.
But I can tell you how I spent my summers as a kid.
I rode my Strawberry Shortcake bike around pretty much every single day. I thought I was the coolest thing ever.
And then when I got bigger, I upgraded to this Huffy 10 Speed and thought I owned the neighborhood.
My friends and I would take bike rides around the big block and sometimes we were allowed to ride to Dairy Queen for a treat.
I know ya’ll are jealous.
At that time I could ride with my feet on the handlebars.
Now I huff and puff and fall off bikes.
Those were the days…. 🙂
In the mornings we were allowed to watch 1 show, so we, obviously, settled on the original Power Rangers. I wanted to be the Pink Ranger and my brother, Dan, wanted to be the Red Ranger.
My best friend in the neighborhood had a pool, so we swam in it almost every day.
We went on summer vacations.
(I’m looking at my shoes in this picture and why the heck did my parents let me climb a mountain in canvas flimsy shoes while the rest of them had on real sneakers? Since I wore that particular outfit, I’m quite sure I didn’t care what was on my feet then.)
We spent a lot of time running through the sprinklers.
My brother played a lot (a lot) of baseball, so we spent 75% of the summer driving to, practicing, and watching him play baseball.
And lastly, I spend loads of my time making boondoggle. Lots of time.
