School's out!!!


School let out a couple weeks ago and we have been trying to find ways to stay busy with the kids. We purchased passes to a local museum, and season passes to a local amusement park trying to keep the kids busy. Even with both those it seems our library seems to be our most frequented, useful, and not to mention cheapest resource. All three children are doing the summer reading program which offers incentives...(IE prizes) to encourage summer reading. As always, Victoria is reading more than her share, while Chandler and Maddie take a little prompting. I have also heard that Barnes and Noble has an awesome reading program where the kids get free books for reading, so check out you local B&N and see if they are participating.

That sounds great and all, but if you still find yourself getting bored this summer, I have the perfect idea: Roadtrip to Michigan!!! :) Heh heh heh...
