School is out....
But summer school has begun!
Yep that's right, there are no breaks here. Sure we have fun and we put to use those water park passes we get every year along with many other summer activities. But we keep learning even over the summer.
Summer break is a good time to review what was learned in school and to get a head start on what will be learned in the upcoming school year. No it doesn't have to be structured in the way school is, but an hour a day of review and learning can be a great way to stimulate the mind. And yes learning can be fun. You can incorporate projects and field trips to make learning a fun adventure.
Also remember that reading is fundamental! Pick up a book and expand your knowledge or let those pages take you to a far off land full of adventure. A visit to the library can be a great educational experience. And if your library is like mines you can get rewards for reading, so join your local summer reading program.

For us structure is no good because this summer I'm just going with the flow, but still not forgetting to stimulate the mind.
I'm all about trying new things so when I go to the store I'm always intrigued by the new items that pop up (or items I just haven...
