The Final Month of Summer

AUGUST – the last month of summer!  Before you know it, the kids will be back in school and we’ll be hunkering down getting ready for winter.

 August is that odd catch-all month – many summer camps are done for the season, friends and neighbors may still be away, days are still long and hot, you don’t want them inside all day watching TV or playing video games, you need to start preparing for the start of school, and older siblings may be heading to or back to college – YIKES!!!  But you still need to keep the kids occupied, calm and content.

There is still plenty of time and opportunity to have fun adventures as a family, many at very low cost or for FREE.

Here are some ideas to take advantage of the last few weeks of summer and make some memories.

“We didn’t realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun!”
