Here in Missouri, the kids have been out of school for two weeks already. I know, that seems incredibly unfair to those of you in other places, doesn’t it?
The plus side of getting out of school later is that your kids haven’t started the “I’m bored” mantra yet. I heard the first murmurings of that phrase yesterday.
When my boys were younger, I have vivid memories of me sitting up late into the night at the very beginning of summer vacation mapping out a grand master plan of every single field trip, learning experience, book and recipe we would tackle.
One year, I was so structured about it that I had an HOURLY schedule for the kids just to make sure that we didn’t “waste” a minute of our summer.
Wisdom has since intervened and I see that one of the best things about summer is unstructured time. Relaxing time. Making memories together as a family.
One of the things that the boys and I like to do in the summer is to go bowling. The air conditioner in the bowling alley is always set deliciously cool, and we can laugh and play together for hours there.
It gets us away from the Xbox, the television and the computer for a while. We reconnect, we laugh, we have a fabulous time together. The boys roll their eyes at my gutter balls and have a little friendly competition between themselves for bragging rights as the Best Bowler in the Family.
Being frugal and on a budget, I loved discovering AMF’s Summer UnPlugged – FREE Bowling for Kids ALL SUMMER LONG! At AMF, kids 15 and under can bowl for free all summer.
